Hi everybody, Sorry for this flurry of e-mail from me over the last few days. This has been highly frustrating. At any rate, I think I've worked it out. Although, I'd like to have some folks look over this <hostname>.mc file and tell me if the fix is legitimate.
Basically, the instructions for setting up SSL and Authentication (from http://www.puresimplicity.net/~hemi/freebsd/sendmail.html) instruct to have the following lines in the <hostname>.mc file: define(`confAUTH_MECHANISMS',`PLAIN LOGIN')dnl TRUST_AUTH_MECH(`PLAIN LOGIN')dnl define(`CERT_DIR', `/etc/mail/certs')dnl define(`confCACERT_PATH', `CERT_DIR')dnl define(`confCACERT', `CERT_DIR/mycert.pem')dnl define(`confSERVER_CERT', `CERT_DIR/mycert.pem')dnl define(`confSERVER_KEY', `CERT_DIR/mykey.pem')dnl define(`confCLIENT_CERT', `CERT_DIR/mycert.pem')dnl define(`confCLIENT_KEY', `CERT_DIR/mykey.pem')dnl DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp, Name=MTA')dnl DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtps, Name=TLSMTA, M=s')dnl I deleated this line: DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp, Name=MTA')dnl And all is working ok now (at least it seems so). I also went over Josh's instructions with a finer tooth comb than before (I skipped a couple of steps because they looked identical to what was in the FreeBSD handbook for this, but found there were some very subtle differences). After recompiling and installing a new sendmail binary per Josh's instructions at the above line, I actually still have the "can't bind to port" problems, but things are now working as I said, without that line in the *.mc file. Is this a viable fix or will I be missing something? I was able to telnet to port 25 and send mail that way. I cannot relay without logging in, so I think it's fixed.
