I would expect that, but according all the tests I made, that's not true:
I did them once again before replying, and that gave, as before,
with the following script for sendmail:
date >> /tmp/sm.log
cat >> /tmp/sm.log
and the result was:
1/ with smtp-server and sendmail-path unset
only the date is written in the log file, which proves that
sendmail is actually called, but with nothing in stdin
2/ with smtp-server unset and sendmail-path=/usr/sbin/sendmail
the log shows the date AND the complete mail (headers and body)
How do you explain that?
Can you reproduce these tests?
