I'm sorry I started this off-topic flame war... I start using sendmail 
in 1990s and it was the best, but it was some ages ago, when all mail 
servers should accept mail from anywere in order to allow users to 
migrate around the net (today we have spam and we call this 
configuration open-relay and it's evil)... of course sendmail is a lot 
different from the ancient sendmail we run in 1990s, but when in 
switched from sendmail to postfix (maybe 10 years ago) I didn't miss at 
all the m4 macros and the sendmail.cf ;-)

....even ios 10.x was good, but that's not the ios we looks for when we 
install new networ gears

...and again, I'm offtopic, sorry again (I promise it's the last mail I 
send on this topic)

BTW, the problem with smtp over ipv6, as for my experience, is not with 
the MTA/MDA, but with antispam filters, webmails, stats software, etc, 
which, not always are ipv6 ready :-(
