Description of problem:
I don't have the current beta at this location, so just close this bug if the
RFE is already on the beta, if not, please change the release to point to the beta.

As two very common sendmail config changes are a smarthost and masquerading, I
wonder why we do not have these options on our sendmail.mc. Sure the RHL
Reference Guide explains hos to edit sendmail.cf, but these changes are lost on
the next m4 run.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. do changes (like every sane person) to sendmail.mc
2. run m4
3. change your smarthost and relay option in sendmail.cf
4. do more changes to sendmail.mc
5. run m4 again

Actual Results:  need to re-enter smarthost and relay option in sendmail.cf

Expected Results:  smarthost and relay option present in sendmail.mc

Additional info:

agh, it's late, SMART_HOST is actually in 8.0 in the mc file, so reduce the RFE
to just include a MASQUERADE_AS option.

I'll go to bed now.
