I don't think they have one.  My system doesn't have one anyway.

I think that all the mail programs are either named /usr/bin/sendmail, or
/usr/bin/sendmail is a symbolic link to the real mail program.  The
'standard' mail program in Debian is exim.  For a dialup connection it
works pretty good.  However, if you are using the 'frozen' version
of Debian, exim has a bug.  It won't work unless you have IPV6 support
included in the kernel.
