You should not have had Sendmail and postfix running at the same time anyway. Besides you /etc/rc.conf file, do you also have a /etc/rc.conf.local file? If so, what does it contain. I am assuming that you never touched the /etc/defaults/rc.conf file. If you did alter it, that was a mistake. Postfix is not simply starting on its own. Somewhere, somehow, something is starting it. -- Gerard _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
