I would much rather stay with the ubuntu package manager (apt-get) if I
can, I already have lots of stuff to manage and I don't have any hard
core customizations. The standard install simply does not work for me,
and I just did a brand new ubuntu install...  I think that it should be
fairly simple to set up, but would rather not re-invent anything and
install from tar.  I can't believe that I am the first to try to set
this up with Ubuntu.

All I need is some direction and advice, maybe I missed a config setting
or something.  Has anybody done this with Ubuntu, sendmail, just using
the apt-get installs?
