Another poorly-named module, one of my workhorses, is Mail::Sendmail, which sends mail. It does not, however, require the sendmail program to do its job.

For that matter, Sendmail itself is a regrettable name. It probably made sense at the time, but is no longer the way to send mail.

      I'm quite aware that Sendmail maintains dominance. That doesn't imply that Sendmail is a good idea. The best you can say about it is that it's not Exchange.
