You have to use a milter with sendmail as it doesn't have the functionality
built in. My friend Google pointed me to this:


If it's even a possibility, you may want to consider moving over to Postfix
as it has this functionality built-in and a much easier config. Of all the
Linux admins I know, I've only met maybe one or two that preferred sendmail
because they knew it better than Postfix and Exim, and a couple more that
preferred Exim. By and large though, almost everyone would rather work on
Postfix for most everything MTA related.

Yes, qmail is there, but I've never heard of anyone actually liking it.
