    These are very badly configured machines.

Maybe, but that may not be the local user's fault.
It could be a case of unmodular design in the system.

When there are new ways of sending mail, the system should be set up
so that `mail' interfaces to them properly, so that applications that
occasonally send mail will work and don't all need to know all these

It could be that this hasn't been done, and ought to be changed in
various mailers.
