I've changed the MTA to postfix just fine.

If I follow the advice from /usr/ports/mail/postfix/pkg-message which states:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Also, you will want to disable some Sendmail-specific daily maintenance
 routines in your /etc/periodic.conf file:

daily_clean_hoststat_enable="NO" daily_status_mail_rejects_enable="NO"
daily_status_include_submit_mailq="NO"
daily_submit_queuerun="NO"
--------------------------

The reports stop completely.

Before I did this I didn't have a periodic.conf at all, relying on the scripts,
which generated these errors:

Jan 16 03:01:01 postfix postfix/sendmail[2177]: fatal: unsupported: -bh
Jan 16 03:01:02 postfix postfix/sendmail[2178]: fatal: unsupported: -bH

Any thoughts?
