I only want sendmail in a jail to do one thing: forward nightly reports from r...@localhost to a real account on another machine. What's the proper way to configure this? By default, sendmail_enable="NO" in /etc/rc.conf still gives a running sendmail that accepts mail from other hosts:


m...@realhost$ echo foo | mail m...@jail.example.com

m...@jail.example.com$ tail -f /var/log/maillog
Feb 27 09:43:37 jail.example.com sm-mta[86832]: n1RFhbBp086832: from=<m...@realhost>, size=735, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<20090227154335.877a442...@realhost>, bodytype=7BIT, proto=ESMTP, daemon=Daemon0, relay=jail.example.com [10.0.5.70] Feb 27 09:43:37 jail.example.com sm-mta[86833]: n1RFhbBp086832: to=<m...@jail.example.com>, delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=local, pri=30983, relay=local, dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent

However, if I set sendmail_enable="NONE", then I can't send outbound email 
either:

m...@jail.example.com$ echo foo | mail m...@realhost
m...@jail.example.com$ tail -f /var/log/maillog
Feb 27 09:37:37 jail.example.com sendmail[86513]: n1RFbbg3086513: from=me, size=28, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<200902271537.n1rfbbg3086...@jail.example.com>, relay...@localhost Feb 27 09:37:37 jail.example.com sendmail[86513]: n1RFbbg3086513: to...@realhost, ctladdr=me (1001/1001), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=30028, relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by [127.0.0.1]

What's the happy medium between "sendmail wide open" (eg sendmail_enable="NO" (WTF?)) and "disabled mail system" (eg sendmail_enable="NONE")?

Here's a possible solution:
