Hello, this is probably a dumb question, but I can't for the life of me
figure out why sendmail and courier are classified universally as
network-mail-mta whereas dovecot is in places like network-mail-general
or some such place. I've used several Linux distros and have noted this
keenly (they also normally classify photorec, the HD recovery tool as
hardware-photography,so this may just be a mistake).
I'm concerned that I'm looking into the wrong software for an mail
transport/delivery agent.

Thanks, David
