? ? ? ? /bin/mail is an MUA (just about :-)). procmail does all sorts of
wonderful things with mail based on header contents but its use is
completely optional. sendmail and postfix definitely fulfil the role of MDA
themselves, as I think does qmail which is the father of the maildir format.
Must try harder, Kevin.
