Thanks Derek. Your reply gave the clues that I needed to make further
progress on this problem. I now have sendmail listening on *.smtp. I had
to also add the lines:


to my rc.conf file so that the /usr/loca/etc/rc.d/mta script would run
and have the right flags for sendmail. Without the -bd flag sendmail
would print out a message about needing recipients and then just hang
there at startup.

I still don't understand what may have changed between 6.x and 7.x. (I
have none of the mta_* variables specified in my 6.4 system's rc.conf.)

Thanks again,

Bob Willcox              The trouble with doing something right the first
b...@immure.com           time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
