Old admins edit the *.cf file, cause we don't know any better.
It is smarter to edit the *.mc and rebuild the *.cf. If you edit the
*.mc file first, M4 has a chance to warn you about typos and other
errors before you try to convince Sendmail to use the config file.
I've seen lots of websites attempting to "help" new users by giving
edits to the *.cf file. But that teaches them nothing about how Sendmail
works, and less than nothing about how to fix it when your Sendmail
borks because you made edits from five different websites.
