And given a good alternative to djbdns, I would use that. Maybe I'll check
out the list given earlier in the thread of DNS servers...
I have usually seen the world (or subset of) in these terms:
sendmail -- bind
qmail -- djbdns
postfix -- ??
Basically, sendmail and bind are the untrustworthy bloated systems with
lots of legacy cruft (to my perhaps unjust opinion).
Qmail and djbdns are DJB's wacky but secure alternatives.
Postfix is Venema's alternative that brings sanity to the world, I have
yet to find the DNS equivalent...
