I never tested the null-password situation, but I can't say why it 
wouldn't work.  Frankly you should use a password, though, for 
security's sake.

MDA = Mail Delivery Agent.  The MTA hands the incoming mail off to the 
MDA, if one is configured and if the mail is to be delivered (rather 
than relayed).  SMRSH provides additional security to sendmail by 
restricting sendmail-run child programs like procmail and smartlist.  I 
don't know RedHat 7.3 very well, but on RedHat 6.1, 6.2, 7.0, and 7.1 
enabling procmail was as simple as:

ln -s /usr/bin/procmail /etc/smrsh/procmail

Also... I haven't yet tried RelayFax version 5 client with those 
recipies... so hopefully they didn't break anything ;-)
