First of all, please note that freebsd-doc is not a help list, but a
mailing list devoted to the discussion of our documentation and web-site
sources.  For general technical questions about every-day operation and
usage of FreeBSD, you should post to freebsd-questions in the future.

Having said that, FreeBSD includes a fairly recent version of the
Sendmail mail transfer agent.  There is no /var/smtpd directory or file
that is involved in setting up and running Sendmail.

Are you trying to configure Sendmail, or some other SMTP daemon?

If you are not trying to configure Sendmail, what SMTP daemon does your
message refer to and how was it installed on your system?
