This may not do the right thing.  It is not uncommon to not run any
sendmail daemon, but just forward everything to another host.  If we
do it like this, the mail will never be delivered, but sit in the
queue forever.

There is no reliable way for Emacs to prevent /usr/lib/sendmail from
choosing to sit on the mail, if that's what it's configured by the
sysadmin to do.  Consider an installation whose mail hub is
temporarily down.

The point is if this is changed, there will be places where Emacs
previously did deliver mail, and now no longer does.  It is an
incompatible change, not to be made lightly IMHO.
