Allmost all that responded suggested updating to sendmail
8.9.1 ( which has relaying turned off by
default and makes it easy yo add relaying back in on a per-
domain/per-host basis. Solaris 7 comes with sendmail 8.9.

I also received suggestions on qmail (

When it comes to SIMS, I received only one answer.
Andy De Petter <> said SIMS works great if
you avoid the terrible Java interface. I have evaluated
SIMS my self and I completly agree when it comes to the
user interface. BTW, the GUI is very slow.

Thanks to all that responded!
