Not all of them, mind you. I use the following on my laptop: sendmail_enable="NO" sendmail_outbound_enable="NO" sendmail_submit_enable="YES" sendmail_msp_queue_enable="YES" A fairly good explanation of why this setup works only as a 'local MTA', and doesn't accept incoming SMTP connections from the world can be found in the manpage of rc.sendmail: % man rc.sendmail To the original poster: Feel free to use the above sendmail_xxx settings in your `/etc/rc.conf' file, but please make sure that you also: ... understand why these settings make Sendmail only forward locally generated email messages, by reading the rc.sendmail manpage. ... have configured properly your local `/etc/mail/sendmail.cf' and `/etc/mail/submit.cf' files. ... read the Handbook section about Sendmail, and let us know if you find it difficult to understand, or you would like to see more stuff documented.
