What I did was remove all lines except `sendmail_enable="NO"` and in / etc/mail/aliases, I setup the root alias to goto my real email address:


I setup my firewall to block incoming/outgoing email on ports 21/25 as well, so no one on the outside can access mail services.

It seems to be working correctly, as I received mail as it was ran to my email.

Does this seem ok?  Did I do anything wrong?

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?

You should allow the system to send out it's mail. And it should go
somewhere meaningful (i.e., to you). And you should read it.

All my systems send me mail every day, and I scan through it to make
sure everything is okay. That's what those messages are for. :)

So, yes. You should disabled incoming, but allow submit, etc. You can
also firewall off incoming instead or in addition.
