Interestingly enough, I am not the only person with this problem. So,
using your reasoning, all the others must also be lazy. Also,
Mickrosoft works fine on this PC. I tried it to rule out a problem with
the unit itself. The problem, confirmed by Dell, is with the OS. They
won't create a work-around to fix it because they claim it is a bug with
FreeBSD and they are not going to introduce a potential problem for
other OSs.

By the way, why would I care if sendmail is the default? It is a
remnant from bygone days. Postfix is far superior. Other OSs have
already switched away from sendmail.

Obviously, you are of no assistance.
