Hi,

I have a remote server that I don't plan on using for email as I have another server to handle that. My question is.. is it a bad idea to _completely_ disable sendmail on that machine? Right now /etc/ rc.conf has:


sendmail_enable="NO"
sendmail_submit_enable="NO"
sendmail_outbound_enable="NO"
sendmail_msp_queue_enable="NO"

But I checked /var/log/maillog and saw about 5 archives of messages that looked like this:

Sep 24 03:01:09 ny sendmail[63140]: k8I719YD078452: k8O71858063140: return to sender: Cannot send message for 5 days Sep 24 03:01:09 ny sendmail[63140]: k8O71858063140: to=postmaster, delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=49386, relay= [127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by [127.0.0.1]

So what should I do? Should I just have "sendmail_enable="NO"" in / etc/rc.conf, so only the incoming mail service is disabled? That way messages could be sent without the above errors? Or what?

Thanks for any help.
