ACK. Good point. I use exim as my MTA, so per default always disable all of sendmail's services. I have never used sendmail, so must admit defeat on this one! From reading rc.sendmail(8) more carefully, I would think setting `sendmail_submit_enable="YES"' should do the trick, but I am by no means certain...
