OpenSMTPd Now the Default MTA in OpenBSD
Contributed by tbert on Thu Mar 13 05:29:12 2014 (GMT)
from the a-demoostik-once-bit-my-sister dept.

After a long time spent in the shadow of Sendmail, OpenSMTPd is now the default MTA in OpenBSD:

CVSROOT:	/cvs
Module name:	src
Changes by:	tedu@cvs.openbsd.org	2014/03/12 12:21:34

Modified files:
	etc            : crontab mailer.conf rc.conf 
	etc/mail       : smtpd.conf 

Log message:
switch over to smtpd by default.
ok deraadt gilles todd

A great deal of thanks to the OpenSMPTd developers for their work in making this possible!

  Great news! The first thing I had to do when I install an OpenBSD was to switch to OpenSMTPd.
Now the fresh install is even faster!

Seriously, this is a big deal. It's as big a change as switching the default HTTP server from Apache to Nginx; possibly even more significant as OpenSMTPd was written in-house.

Big congrats to all the developers!

  I hope the devs don't move on to something else anytime soon - the code leaves rather a lot to be desired. But, sadly, that seems to be about average, especially with open source. That's not a troll by the way (I have used OBSD for many years); it's just an observation.

I don't work here.
  I've come out out hiding to wish you congratulations on slaying the demon that is sendmail!

  Great work guys ! but...

Not sure if i like this yet....
I mean the smtp daemon works great and i using it on several places but on many places i can't use it because it lacks supports for things like clamav and spamassassin.

ps. Anyone got a working version of check_mailq nagios plugin to check the opensmtpd mail queue ?
