Mail Server

Sendmail is a nice server for sending and receiving mail. sendmail has a daemon that sits and watches port 25 and listens for mail. Usually sendmail is on by default, but it is not accepting mail from outside the computer. Many of the computer processes send mail to the root account by default on a frequent basis.
