	Keep in mind that postfix was designed to be as much of a drop-in 
replacement for sendmail as possible, at least to the degree of the 
interfaces, the names that binaries are called, etc....  So, you'll 
still have a program on your system called "sendmail", it will just 
point to the postfix code instead.

	Nevertheless, such a replacement is never 100%.  You should look 
at the system carefully to make sure that you fully understand 
everything that is going on before and after the switch.

	Then you should look closely at the postfix documentation and 
make sure that you've got everything configured the way you want, 
because the way sendmail does most things is very, very different 
from the way postfix does them (at least, at the admin level).
