So both 1 and 2 need to be configurable via ldirectord.cf.

Some others have mentioned using a perl mailer module. What is the one that
most distributions use (Redhat, SuSE, and Debian)? Can someone provide an
example of their use? I do not normally use Perl so I am not familiar with
the different modules.
We already have Mail::Sendmail and Mail::Sender. Mail::Sender sounds more
generic and independent of sendmail, but Mail::Sendmail might be installed on
a wider basis?
