Hi Giorgos, it was always my understanding that sendmail_enable="YES" will turn Sendmail on wholesale: commandline submits, inbound, outbound. rc.sendmail(8) certainly doesn't counter that interpretation, and reading /etc/defaults/rc.conf and /etc/rc.sendmail confirms it... Or I'm reading it wrong, which is more than possible. -- If you cc me or remove the list(s) completely I'll most likely ignore your message. see http://www.eyrie.org./~eagle/faqs/questions.html To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
