Simply, no, or at least not that are publicly floating around.  qmail
is a very clean package, and was designed with virtual hosting in mind.

Nothing concerning sendmail is simple :)

Google for 'sendmail virtual hosting'.  Basically you'll need to edit
the /etc/mail/local-host-names, /etc/mail/virtualusertable, and
possibly the sendmail.cf/mc files themselves.  And in the end, when
working with sendmail, I've found the best reference to be:

1) a 70 year old sendmail admin who has done it their whole life.
2) the o'reilly book

(in that order).

It's hard to call one superior than the other - sendmail is the 800
pound gorilla, while qmail is the chimpanzee.  Some argue that sendmail
has more features and is faster - while this may be true, 99% of those
features are useless to the average user, and performance is
negligable.  qmail is certainly the more modern and well put together
package.

pure-ftpd vs wu-ftpd?
