Hmmm... The point with the DAEMON_OPTIONS stuff is to make sendmail
bind to just the IP numbers for the host system and not to the
jails. What do you get from running:

    % sockstat | grep sendmail

I've got a jailed setup much like the one you want to set up, and I get:

    % sockstat | grep sendmail
    root     sendmail 17330    4 tcp4        *:*
    root     sendmail 17330    5 tcp4          *:*
    root     sendmail 17330    6 tcp4       *:*
    root     sendmail 17330    7 tcp4         *:*
    root     sendmail 17330    8 tcp6   ::1:25                *:*
    smmsp    sendmail 62897    3 dgram  syslogd[62885]:3
    root     sendmail 17330    3 dgram  syslogd[98]:3
    smmsp    sendmail 17329    3 dgram  syslogd[98]:3

Where PID 62897 is the sendmail MSP queue runner in the jail.  Note
that in this setup, nothing binds to and listens on any network ports
from within the jail.

Hmmm... I also have:

    define(`confDOMAIN_NAME', `smtp.infracaninophile.co.uk')dnl

in my .mc file: that may stop sendmail trying to reverse lookup all
it's interfaces in an attempt to work out what its FQDN is.

That can be because sendmail finds itself unexpectedly receiving the
message it thinks it is sending off to the next hop for further
processing.  It usually means that the /etc/mail/local_host_names file
needs to be adjusted, but that may not be the case here.

Well, it works for me.  I'd be interested to find out if the
confDOMAIN_NAME thing is significant.  If so, then it seems that I
must have lucked out to have stumbled on that accidentally.
