Isn't this a little exaggerated these days? If I remember correctly I
have updated Sendmail twice this year and even if you might want to
reply that you haven't updated Postfix at all I don't feel bad about the
one hour I spent doing those two updates.

If you want Postfix as your internet facing MTA for security reasons,
can't you put up a simple relay machine with Postfix that delivers to a
MS/Sendmail-machine? Best of both worlds..?
