In a default install, the daily security mail is queued in
/var/spool/clientmqueue, and never delivered!
The default install does not properly deliver mail to localhost.
The new sendmail configuration is not amenable to sending only to
localhost and outgoing send-pr mail, without also allowing incoming
smtp (which is disabled in the default install).
According to traffic on the tech-install list, postfix is trivially
configurable to send only, without also allowing incoming smtp.
(1) install a clean system
(2) wait for daily mail to root@localhost
(3) it never arrives
(4) look at /var/log/maillog
(5) look at /var/spool/clientmqueue
