This is what you would need. Not everyone would have similar situations
to you. People may need more options than what a 'simple' smtp forwarder
can offer.


Call me oldfashioned, but I think any unixish OS
should have every essential internet services aboard,
and imho this includes mail.
Reoccuring debates shouldn't stop shipping those.

I agree on that one.
I briefly looked at the other MTA's but the difference with the "standard" seem to me to minimal for me to go through the time and trouble to learn a other one.
If at some time a other much superior MTA gets shipped with DF, well no problem then I'll learn that one but as long as it isn't needed why change a winning team?

One of the pro's of BSD is that there is a well maintained base of common services with good interoperability out of the box.
I'll even wouldn't mind if there put a SQL db in the source like PostgreSQL.
