I, personally, have always just simply ditched the Sun sendmail
distribution, excluded any further sendmail patches and have installed
the publically available sendmail from sendmail.org (present version
I find this to be a much more customizable solution in terms of
antirelay/antispam (such as Vixie's RBL, etc..) in terms that you have
access to the cf generation process, versus dealing with a
pre-configured .cf file as is the case with Sun.
To each their own, I reckon.
