Not from Norman (I'm pretty sure), there was a program called 'ease'
that did just that. Using it, I wrote a sendmail config file *from scratch*
for the computing center and math/cs system at Emory U, where I worked
at the time.

Because of that, the Morris worm totally passed us by. :-)

I think that I have literally forgotten more about sendmail than most
people ever know, and I'm totally OK with that. :-)
