You are still missing important bits about Sendmail configuration on the FreeBSD operating system. Please read the `rc.sendmail' manpage VERY VERY carefully, and then tell us what you can see with: grep sendmail /etc/defaults/rc.conf /etc/rc.conf > Currently, my main assumption is that /etc/mail/sendmail.cf is the > primary administrative interface for e-mail. This assumption is wrong. There is an Internet Email chapter in the FreeBSD Handbook. Have you checked it out? It's far from perfect, but it should help a bit. > I'll nose around via google. Make sure you also read the local manpages of your FreeBSD installation, and the Handbook... Especially the Handbook. After you read the `rc.sendmail' manpage and the Handbook chapter about Sendmail, please do not hesitate to tell us more details about your current Sendmail setup (including snippets from `/etc/rc.conf', or files from `/etc/mail'). Even if you have questions _while_ _still_ reading the documentation, feel free to ask. There are a lot of knowledgeable people on this list, and they can eagerly help you, but we can't really walk you -- using a long-winded email thread -- through all the tiny little steps of setting up your own Sendmail installation.
