Question What is the default email (MTA) for RHEL6


I'm not sure what most people are using. I'll all I've been able to find stated from Redhat is that both Postfix and Sendmail are used. However, studying I've found that Postfix is alot easier to configure.

I found it: http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Re...e_Changes.html

Postfix is noted as the default MTA (it's stated within the last item-system-config-switchmail).
