Sorry about the top posting. I have never heard of top posting before. I just had to look it up on google to see what it even meant. Now I know :)

I am not sure how qmail-smtpd is running. I don't even see it in my process list anywhere. I am running qmail + vpopmail + courier-imap.

you probably won't, it's only active when there is a connection active.

The only other thing that I can see is that in my /etc/rc.local startup script i have a line that says:

csh -cf '/command/svscanboot &'

that's starting svscan on /service. that's from daemontools.

Could that have something to do with how qmail-smtpd is running?

maybe, if you're running it under daemontools.

How does qmail-smtpd usually start with a qmail + vpopmail setup?

it must be started under a superserver such as tcpserver, inetd, xinetd,

I assume you're using freebsd, so you can't use netstat -anp to get the
process id of what is listening on port 25.

The thing is, you should know how it's starting, because you set it up.

Ahh yes... You've jogged my memory a bit.

I am starting qmail-smtpd using inetd with the following line:

smtp stream tcp nowait qmaild /var/qmail/bin/tcp-env tcp-env /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd

Could I just add -x/etc/tcp.smtp.cdb to the end of that line?
