Oh sure, now you tell me. It’s a bit late, being well over 20 years in.
But seriously, just because someone doesn’t use the tool you like doesn’t mean their choice is inferior. A whole hell of a lot of servers use postfix, and you are not qualified to denigrate people who make that choice just because it isn’t the choice you like.
You like opaque configuration files that punish the admin, fine, you be you. Don’t tell me I should be like you though.
Hm.. I should update that to over 25 years. Sigh.

I disagree. I *hated* sendmail, and most especially trying to parse the documentation and configurations. Maybe the docs have gotten better, but the configuration itself is still opaque to the point of making perl look human-readable and kid-friendly.

Yep, that’s about what I remember. No thanks.
