I don't know why, in FreeBSD, even though you install
postfix it will
appears as sendmail. Will this become any problem?

All of the available MTAs will do that, because the standard Unix API
for an application to send e-mail is for that app to pipe the message
into the STDIN of /usr/sbin/sendmail.  Alternative MTAs have always
therefore provided a high degree of sendmail compatibility and expect
to have binaries either installed as or linked to /usr/sbin/sendmail.

Unlike most other Unix or unix-oid systems, FreeBSD has a slightly
more sophisticated variation on this.  /usr/sbin/sendmail is actually
a wrapper program and not Sendmail Brand sendmail(tm) at all -- see
mailwrapper(8) for details.  Simply by editing the configuration file
/etc/mail/mailer.conf you can switch between sendmail-from-the-base-system, 
sendmail-from-ports, exim, postfix, qmail, ssmtp and probably half a
dozen others.  mailer.conf also covers a number of other sendmail
related commands like newaliases(1) and hoststat(8).

The sendmail binary provided by the base system is installed as

Correct. And if you install Postfix from the ports collection, it will ask you if you want Postfix installed into the mailer.conf.

Therefore, if the OP did not install through the ports, the mailer.conf might not have been changed.

Either way, the logs the OP was showing are not Posfix. I just did a quick test from a terminal using sendmail and this is what it looks like:

Sep 12 11:54:11 duane postfix/local[71012]: 673D66D437: to=<[EMAIL PROTECTED]>, 
orig_to=<[EMAIL PROTECTED]>, relay=local, delay=7.8, delays=7.7/0.02/0/0.02, 
dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (delivered to mailbox)

None of the logs that were shown bare the Postfix name.
