As has been repeated many times, installing the postfix port doesn't
remove the sendmail stuff, the sendmail manpages that hide the postfix
ones, etc. Of course someone diligent enough can remove all that stuff
by hand, but as soon as a system becomes widely used, this sort of thing
becomes "unprofessional". Do you imagine doing that on a pool of 100
Sure no problem. It is in the same problem category as a windows
administrator administrating a pool of 100 clients and the necessary
servers. If that administrator has not figured out how to automate that
process, (s)he should be very ashamed.
But with a unix-like system it is so much easier to automate things in
comparison to windows-like systems.
