But Qmail has those totally useless error messages it sends to users.  "I
couldn't deliver your mail.  Sorry it didn't work out." doesn't exactly
tell me what the problem was.

Of course, calling Qmail "secure, fast, stable" and Sendmail "bloated,
insecure, slow and semi-stable" doesn't make them so.  Can you point us to
some benchmark info?  What would be the specific benefits of switching
from Sendmail to Qmail?  I run a mailing list server on multiple domains.
