People, I got sendmail working to send mail.
I started with this: http://www.google.com/search?q=bsd+sendmail+configuration >From there I found 2 excellent links which answered all my questions: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/sendmail.html http://www.technoids.org/freebsdsendmailfaqs.html It's easy to configure sendmail so it is only a sender, not a receiver of mail: In /etc/rc.conf put this: sendmail_enable="NO" # Run the sendmail inbound daemon (YES/NO). And from the faq link this was useful since it told me how to start sendmail: 5. How do I start sendmail? # cd /etc/mail # make start 6. How do I stop sendmail? # cd /etc/mail # make stop After I started sendmail I waited a bit and then sure enough, I found the e-mail I was looking for in my yahoo account. -b ___________________________________________________________________________________ You snooze, you lose.
