That would work too.

However, I am wondering if there is some confusion.
If Postfix is running, why doesn't sendmail.el send out
mail thru Postfix?

OS X comes with Postfix installed, but not configured. Postfix is not running by default (security considerations). That means that sendmail is installed and accepts messages, but puts them in a queue. Because Postfix is not running, they never get sent off, and no bounce is generated either.
