Thanks for your reply.

Actually, I am retrieving my emails from my ISP's SMTP server but I know
I don't need to run sendmail to retrieve them. I did kill those 2
processes. I'm just too sure if it will have some impact on email

Interestingly, I do have sendmail_enable="NO" in my /etc/rc.conf file,
yet sendmail continues to automatically start whenever I reboot.

I might have to go learn more about auto-start processes.
