In XEmacs, `sendmail' is always configured.

In XEmacs the default MUA is RMail[1] + sendmail.  IMHO in the modern
environment that is far from working for the kind of user this feature
is aimed at.

[1]  Note that I don't know what features recent RMail might have in
it, but lack of multipart/mixed and MIME attachment support is a
killer IMO, and it would seem from recent traffic that even recent
Emacs versions don't have those without add-ons like tm or SEMI.
