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.

> R<?> <$+> <$*> <+ $-> <$*> $: <$(access $1 $: ? $)> <$1> <$2> <+ $3> <$4>
> R<?> <$+ + $* @> <$*> <$- $-> <$*>
> $: <$(access $5:$1+*@ $: ? $)> <$1+$2@> <$3> <$4 $5> <$6>
God!!! NO!!!! Not the .cf file's context free grammar!!! *Has visions of discrete math classes in comp sci* *convulses, falls to the ground, the sendmail configuration emergency team quickly dresses him in his 'happy jacket with the long sleeves' and carts him off to the sendmail hospital. Months of therapy ensues - visions of sub-domaining and header re-writing rules dance through his tormented mind... * NOO!!!! Make it STOOOOOPPPPPP!!!!!
Great... thanks... I was in recovery for over 15 years and now, I've fallen off the wagon....
Come on, people. Show some consideration for the sendmail-scarred. I suffer from S(endmail)PTSD. Give some warning before you throw something like that into a mail..... or at least put it further down with lots of white space and a "*SPOILERS*" alert... or something....
