How sendmail works
This section provides an overview of how mail is processed
and delivered on an SCO OpenServer system when sendmail is
chosen as the mail router (in place of MMDF)
and sendmail is used in the standard configuration.
In the standard configuration, sendmail
runs as a daemon (acting as the SMTP server
listening for SMTP requests)
and as one or more user processes
(or ``instances'') that process
and deliver mail messages.
