Your lo0 only has inet6 addresses, perhaps try binding a v4 address?

What does 'ifconfig lo0' say?

What does 'sockstat | grep :25' say?

What does 'ls -la /usr/libexec/sendmail/' say?

What does 'mount | grep /usr' say?

It sounds as if either:

    * Your loopback interface has lost address 127.0.0.1

or:

    * Some process other than a live sendmail instance has bound to port
      25 on the loopback.

or:

    * sendmail has somehow lost its setgid-ness

# ifconfig lo0
lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  metric 0 mtu 16384
        inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x3
        inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128

(lo0 looks unconfigured to me)

# sockstat | grep :25
root     sendmail   7371  3  tcp4   *:25                  *:*
root     sendmail   7371  5  tcp6   *:25                  *:*

(that looks fine to me)

# ls -la /usr/libexec/sendmail/
total 676
drwxr-xr-x  2 root  wheel     512 Mar 30 21:03 .
drwxr-xr-x  5 root  wheel    1536 Mar 30 21:03 ..
-r-xr-sr-x  1 root  smmsp  669788 Mar 30 21:03 sendmail

(looks OK to me, too)

# mount | grep /usr
/dev/aacd0s1f on /usr (ufs, local, soft-updates)

(Looks normal to me, too)

Thanks

Thanks,

Once I saw that lo0 was not configured for ipv4, I did a:

#ifconfig lo0 inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 255.0.0.0

and local mail resolved and was delivered and I can now ping localhost.

I just have to wonder how in heck it got that way.

Thanks all
