Doesn't matter.  The bug is simple: in a default config of OS X, if you do
"sendmail address@hidden <somemail" the mail is lost without any error message.

Doesn't matter either.

A warning or an error, yes: If Postfix is not configured, it should not
accept any mail.

It's for Apple to make this call.  Just like if you use an Debian package of
Emacs, you should send your bug-reports to Debian, not here.
