For me, "local delivery" means "no guests from outside"
and in general no open ports to internet or even local network
by default (with a few exclusions),
only those ports I explicitely opened.
"Explicitely" doesn't mean installing a package or running a daemon
(even network oriented), provided that such dehaviour is documented,
in case of pkgsrc MESSAGE file is a good place for this.

What kind of benefits of opening smtp port to outside you see
in case you are not admin of megacorp?

I'm sure that lots of pkgsrc users use personal computers
with a few users registered, most of them are trusted,
i.e. no foreign guests. Not?
