Your problem is likely related to ipfw, or "firewall_type", "firewall_enable" in /etc/rc.conf. The "permission denied" error implies that your firewall ruleset is preventing the outgoing connection. Try: ipfw show to see your current firewall rules. Also read through /etc/rc.firewall and /etc/defaults/rc.conf to get some more information on the firewall issues. When you've gotten that resolved you should have enough information to get sendmail working the way you want. lane _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
