Love your SMTP neighbour

Postfix is my favourite MTA for reasons I’ll not go into at the moment. It’s much better than sendmail.

Recently there has been yet another sendmail vulnerability, but I didn’t care because I use Postfix. Wietse Venema, the author of Postfix, did care. He could have said "sendmail sucks; use Postfix", but instead he wrote a patch for Postfix to remove the sendmail exploit from messages before they reach sendmail. Kudos.
