This question comes from complete ignorance about this stuff (what happens when turning off sendmail), but if I turn off sendmail will system messages still get delivered? Also, I'm going to be using this box as a web server and I'm using Joomla!. If I turn this off, will I still get the notifications that new users have signed on, etc.? I'd like to turn it off because the box doesn't sit inside of a fully qualified domain (it sits inside a 192.168.x/24 network), but will host web services for www.whitneybaptist.org. Obviously, requests sent to 126.96.36.199 on port 80 are forwarded to this box (actually, internally it's 192.168.2.23). Also, (for those who have endured helping me work through the issues with our mail server) until I get things worked out with DNS this new server will not be hosting e-mail for this domain (whitneybaptist.org), that's temporarily being done at google mail.
So, basically, what sort of trouble am I going to get into by turning off sendmail? Also, I think I'm going to implement DNS, an internal thing, to make this box happy and then point the resolver to use the Internet DNS servers for everything else.
