Hmmm... Sounds like you're trying to start up the sendmail from the
base system but using the .mc/.cf files with all of the SASL stuff in

Check the contents of /etc/mail/mailer.conf -- make sure you're
starting up the port version of sendmail, which will be

Either that, or ditch the ports version of sendmail, and add the
following to your /etc/make.conf:

    SENDMAIL_CFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include -DSASL=2

plus install the the security/cyrus-sasl2 port.  (Read the comments in
/etc/make.conf if you prefer to use SASLv1 -- setup is almost
identical) That will build you a SASL enabled sendmail from the base

for details of setting up the base system with SASL-ized sendmail
using SASLv1.  Same instructions work for SASLv2 if you make the
obvious substitutions.
