Which does not alter my opinion one whit. Yes, security was a problem in those days. Regardless my statement stands that qmail is a case study in how not to write an MTA. Its handling of mail is abysmal and while other MTAs, including Sendmail, have been able to adjust to the current spam laden climate qmail's architecture leaves it utterly incapable of sanely approaching the problem. I think that, if nothing else, proves my point. Just because it was implemented as a reaction to another MTA's poor security does not mean that its implementation is worth spit.
