sendmail listserver

I would caution to read everything about the differences between sendmail
8.8 and 8.10 before attempting the upgrade.  The security is much better
but configuration is a lot more complicated.  We probably spent 30
manhours getting sendmail working after upgrading.  Without going into the
gory details it was a painful experience.
