They did-it's called OS X Server
Authored by: Anonymous on Aug 28, '02 01:36:50PM

That's why you pay a premium for OS X server. Nice GUI tools to control those nasssty text files, yes preciousss. I mean really, X client CAN be used as a server, but that's not its target market. It's a client. How many soccer moms are going to want to run sendmail? Personally, I think having the checkbox there in client would be a disaster. You'd have morons the world 'round checking the box and setting up stupid things like open relays without a clue as to what they were doing-just like all the DeadRat admins with default wide open boxes. Yes, you can still have morons doing this in X Server, but the higher cost of entry will go a long ways towards thinning the herd. As far as client checkboxes go, web and file sharing make sense, ssh is borderline but appreciated by power users, ftp is nuts but some folks insist on it. But sendmail? A solution in search of a problem.

Last time I checked (10.1.5), there is no GUI in OS X server for sendmail... the GUI is for Apple's own AppleMailServer... sendmail config is still manual. Might have change in 10.2, but doubt it.
