It seems every Linux/BSD has reoccuring wars with what MTA to use by
default, everyone has their own ideas and licenses. For me, one of the
first things I do with a box is run my scripts to rip out the existing
smtpd and install my own preference.
While a mail transfer mechanism is pretty much required with a base
install, I don't think a full blown mail transfer agent is. I propose
a default simple smtp forwarder which will listen to 127.0.0.1:25 and
deliver locally or forward the connection to a local or isp smtpd, as
Will this cause anyone problems?
