Have we covered alternatives to sendmail before? Hard to say which batch of migrators this is aimed at, since the Unix people probably know how to do this themselves, and the GUI people might not need it or want to mess with it. But, if you're somewhere in between like me and know just enough to completely hose your sendmail setup while playing around, consider taking the opportunity to replace it with, say, Postfix -- "fast, easy to administer, and secure, while at the same time being sendmail compatible enough to not upset existing users." I used the very helpful Postfix HowTo from HMUG; for configuration and operation tips once it's installed, check out Graham Orndorff's article at StepWise.
