Look in /usr/lib/smail/routers, transports, & directors.  You should find a
definition for the local user there.  Change the directory.

Presto! :-)

Smail 3 can also be compiled for tcp/ip networking.  If you do this, it is a
drop-in sendmail replacement.  100%.  We did it here, had to hack on it a
bit, but it works and works well.  Cooking with Gas!

The best part is that you can actually understand the configuration files :-)

Oh yuck.  I hope that can at least be turned off.  ISC is just fine from
that position as it is.  And I >love< the filesystem speed.
