Starting with FreeBSD 4.6 (I think) Sendmail must be running to accept
mail from the localhost. That is likely what your first sendmail process
is doing there. It may not be listening on the external interface.

You can check this by telnetting to port 25 and see if you can connect.

Edit your /etc/rc.conf file and make sure you have


in it somewhere.


# sh /etc/rc.sendmail stop && sh /etc/rc.sendmail start

to make sure it's going properly. Doublecheck by telnetting again.
