I think people prefer to do it in Mimedefang, because it's a richer/simpler environment. I think more people understand Perl than do sendmail.cf files. As for Postfix? I don't think you even can.

Plus what if I want to open a different file, or use a different logging priority/facility?  You can't set those in sendmail's rulesets.
