I would be very grateful if people could keep the wiki up to date. A  
big problem with wikis is the information in them becoming stale.

One major thing that needs (re)-writing is a Solaris installation  
guide. The current one (which I wrote a long time ago) is totally out  
of date and useless. I might well just remove it completely. I have  
someone doing a Solaris install at the moment, and being a newbie to  
Solaris he is hitting every problem in the book. So hopefully his  
writeup will be useful to other Solaris users.

Yes, sorry I had to do that. But the vast majority of new MailScanner  
users are running sendmail 8.13 on Linux. So I had no option but to  
set the default to posix, or else all the inexperienced users out  
there would have to know to change an "Advanced" setting. A large  
proportion of my new users are hobbyist web hosting setups, where  
they have a web server at an ISP and provide net services for friends  
and a few local businesses.
