(I'm not the package maintainer, nor affiliated with him.)

The "mimedefang" package [1] in Debian, regardless of which version of
Debian you're running, doesn't depend on "sendmail", it only recommends
it. Thus, you should be able to have it installed without sendmail.

Is MIMEDefang useful in any way without either sendmail or postfix
installed? It seems to me that the package should say: "Depends:
sendmail | postfix".
