[alug] Debian Install of Sendmail

Hi there,

I'm odds-on to take the plunge and install Debian (VA CD hi Gareth!) this
weekend.

Now I am paranoid about my mail. I was so paranoid about sendmail that
rather than follow the instructions a fellow Demonite put up on the web, I
instead downloaded a copy from another site for Demon.

I have seen Debian installing before, asking about fetchmail, sendmail,
god knows what else. That actually scared the sh*t out of me, since I've
already had one install when sendmail bounced all my mail - I don't want
that happening again.

So, I can grab a copy of the .cf file as a backup, but what I need to know
is what to say to the Debian installation to make sure mail works exactly
how it does currently under RedHat 6.0.


FWIW, I have a number of 'users' here accepting mail, such as 'webmaster',
'gnome', etc., all getting stored in /var/spool/mail/{user}

Thanks,

James Green
