Quoting Marc MERLIN (email@example.com):
> Yep, at least for exim (I don't know the decent details for sendmail).
> Exim 3 had 3 security levels for that matter, although it's been simplified
> in exim 4
For sendmail, it's mentioned in passing here:
>> Thus, the security advantage claimed by modular MTAs (postfix,
>> qmail) is reduced, and you gain the advantage of a simpler, easier to
>> audit/examine architecture.
> Mmmh, I don't know if I'd go that far.
> I would still consider qmail and postfix more secure than exim/sendmail
I did say _reduced_, not reversed.
Cheers, "Reality is not optional."
