If you want sendmail-8.14.1 on a FreeBSD 6.x system, then installing it out of ports really is the best and easiest way to go. There's no need to overwrite what the base system installs -- because of the way mailwrapper works, /usr/sbin/sendmail will refer to the ports version automatically. The ports version of sendmail is a pretty seamless drop in for the system version. You don't even need to use the startup scripts the port installs in /usr/local/etc/rc.d Instead, if you add the following to /etc/make.conf you can use the standard /etc/rc.d/sendmail start/stop scripts and all the machinery in /etc/mail for turning .mc into .cf files: SENDMAIL_CF_DIR= /usr/local/share/sendmail/cf MAKEMAP= /usr/local/sbin/makemap Cheers, Matthew - -- Dr Matthew J Seaman MA, D.Phil.
