powerful, efficient, and scalable Mail Transport Agent (metapackage)

Sendmail is an alternative Mail Transport Agent (MTA) for Debian. It is suitable for handling sophisticated mail configurations, although this means that its configuration can also be complex. Fortunately, simple things can be done easily, and complex things are possible, even if not easily understood ;) Sendmail is the *ONLY* MTA with a Turing complete language to control *ALL* aspects of delivery! Sendmail provides Security and SPAM/UCE/UBE protection via several means. Sendmail includes *no* Mail User Agents (MUA), you'll have to pick from the plethora of available MUAs (mutt, vm, etc.) This package supports REGEX, DB, NIS, NIS+, LDAP, DNS maps, and has enabled TCPWrappers, IPv6, LockFile, SMTP AUTH(SASL), STARTTLS(SSL). This package is to make installation/upgrading easier (Do NOT delete it)
