Yep definite possibility...bit expensive (twice) and introduces another
point of failure to worry about.

I think you missed my point.  I was advising to USE sendmail instead of
postfix when considering the issues related to postfix/mailscanner
functionally....vs the effort involved in maintaining sendmail....I've
migrated to sendmail...and just accepted the possibility of
security/reliability issues with sendmail (if any arise)
