Which may not work 100%.  MD runs as "defang" and sendmail -bv is not
guaranteed to be accurate for non-root users:

$ /usr/sbin/sendmail -bv dfs at roaringpenguin.com
Notice: -bv may give misleading output for non-privileged user

Also, if you shell out, make sure you do NOT do something like:

      open(IN, "/usr/sbin/sendmail -bv $recipient|");

Reasons why left as an exercise for the reader.
