The OP has allready configured sendmail the way he wants.
I've seemed to made an error. Setting sendmail_enable="NO" results in disableling incomming sendmail service. But you incorrect about the default. It seems that you have modified /etc/defaults/rc.conf. Mine (4.9) says YES. And according to this: http://people.freebsd.org/~jkb/howto.html/ "By default FreeBSD ships with sendmail enabled." -- Alex Articles based on solutions that I use: http://www.kruijff.org/alex/index.php?dir=docs/FreeBSD/ _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
