What you see is `normal' for a host which supports local email delivery and forwards everything else to another `smart host'. If you want to start a listener which also accepts email from the network (instead of a listener only for 127.0.0.1 like the one you have now), you will have to tweak the `sendmail_xxx_enable' options in your `/etc/rc.conf' file. Right now, you probably have something like: sendmail_enable="NO" sendmail_submit_enable="YES" sendmail_msp_queue_enable="YES" To run the sendmail daemon for inbound email connections on all network interfaces, you need sendmail_enable="YES", and then you can drop the line for the `submit' daemon: sendmail_enable="YES" sendmail_msp_queue_enable="YES" Note: For more details about these `rc.conf' variables, it may be useful to read the rc.sendmail(5) manpage. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
