Sendmail has improved quite drastically.  I remember a few years ago
sendmail's out of the box performance was so bad that I just *had* to
replace it - and I choose zmailer because it was doing such a great job
on vger.rutgers.edu, a completly underpowered machine that was still
running other services.

Still zmailer is faster and saner to configure for most applications.
