+Here's how to remove binmail from your system. Don't do this if you have
+configured qmail to use binmail for local delivery.
+1. Find the binmail binary on your system: /usr/libexec/mail.local if
+ that exists, otherwise /bin/mail.
+2. Remove permissions from the binmail binary:
+ # chmod 0 /usr/libexec/mail.local
+3. If the binmail binary was /bin/mail, make sure that ``mail'' still
+ invokes a usable mailer. Under SVR4 you may want to link mail to
+ mailx.
+4. Comment out the comsat line in /etc/inetd.conf, and kill -HUP your
+ inetd.
