Sendmail was of course _the_ Unix MTA for a long time. Every other
MTA on Unix comes with compatibility tools to pretend to be Sendmail for
applications on the system. Eg, expect your Exim or Postfix system to
have /usr/sbin/sendmail. Running strings on the binary will reveal it is
not a true Sendmail but a compatability tool.
 Mail Transport Agent - the daemon that accepts mail for your domain(s)
and delivers it to mail boxes.
