I'm leaving sendmail long ago since I'm migrated to Postfix.. but however as i still remember, default sendmail installation is just listening to localhost. so u need to alter the *.cf file ( in /etc/mail/ ).. # SMTP client options O ClientPortOptions=Family=inet, Address=0.0.0.0 by default this line will be commented out ( with # or dnl ) or just listen to localhost previously I faced this prob with old RedHat 7.x.. anyone who know this, maybe can correct me if I'm wrong TQ -- ___________________________________________________ Play 100s of games for FREE! http://games.mail.com _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
