The DragonFly Mail Agent is now the default MTA

The handbook page linked looks like it needs these two locations
corrected throughout but I primarily looked at the dma section.

1. /etc/mailer.conf changed to /etc/mail/mailer.conf

2. /etc/periodic.conf changed to /etc/defaults/periodic.conf

I didn't check all the locations in the other sections of the page as I
don't have the software installed.
