If you want to use sendmail as your MTA you have to use Standard
configuration.

What exactly does that mean?


iiuc, postfix is the normal install. If you want to use sendmail rather
than the postfix provided "sendmail" (Postfix to Sendmail compatibility
interface), you have to use the configuration provided by the sendmail
package (vs postfix package) and hand edit the configuration.

Sendmail that you see on normal openSUSE installations is provided to
allow one to use other packages in a manner quite similar to the full
sendmail package (vs postfix).



I need to be able to send mail from other machines, via the imap server,
iiuc, to prevent having mail: received and sent scattered over many
machines, and storage of all mail, in one place.
I need to configure a mailserver, that sends the mail to the places the
mail needs to be sent, is this correct?
Then, if i would choose sendmail, instead of cyrus or what the other to
be installed pkgs would provide, sendmail would handle this?


Please understand my confusion:
Fetchmail works, i only have to make the command permanent with regular
intervals.
Procmail is installed, and had prepared maildirs.
How to get the mail that fetchmail stores in /var/mymailbox, to the
maildirs in the /home/maildir/mymailbox?
