Hmmm, it looks like your `sendmail.cf' has been overwritten by an unexpanded copy of `sendmail.mc'. What do you see with: % diff -u /etc/mail/freebsd.mc /etc/mail/sendmail.cf If this shows only a few lines of local changes, then you should keep a backup copy of the current `/etc/mail/sendmail.cf' file and then try to macro-expand it with the `/etc/mail/Makefile' machinery to generate a real `sendmail.cf' file... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
