You are right, Im new with sendmail also, and therefore I have no "taste"
yet. So Ive just installed postfix via the Redhat Fedore install tool, and I
have disabled sendmail in chkconfig. But I cant find postfix in the
chkconfig --list, does it have some strange name or du I have to manually
get chkconfig to know its there?
