I followed your earlier thread (hopefully this is a related topic). This is strange. By default, sendmail is disabled. You don't even have to put anything into rc.conf: # grep sendmail /etc/defaults/rc.conf Sendmail listens and accepts local mail only. You can't connect to it from another machine: # telnet some.host.tld 25 Trying 18.104.22.168... telnet: connect to address 22.214.171.124: Connection refused telnet: Unable to connect to remote host You must've tweaked something to make it behave differently. > I tested the same setup with sshd, and that works properly.

Share with us your testing methodology. From previous thread, I understand that you just want something to submit your local mail (from daemons, scripts, etc). Then as others already said, a simple alias in /etc/mail/aliases and executing newaliases is sufficient.
