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