Dirk Thanks for the pointer to /usr/share/sendmail/cf/README.
It seems like this is generic info not really targeted at the way
sendmail is installed under FBSD.
So guessing at what it's really trying to saw I have arrived at
this to tell sendmail my sites domain name.
Change DOMAIN(generic) to DOMAIN(fbsdjones.com)
To compile the freebsd.mc source into the freebsd.cf file
Reboot to enable
Is this correct?
To my question, How do I tell sendmail to not do reverse IP lookup?
You said to Use: /etc/mail/service.switch
There is no file like that on my system and the README gives no
pointers as the where to find sample of this file. Need to know
syntax of statement that goes into /etc/mail/service.switch and how
to enable it.
Thanks for your help

Only by recompiling ...
but you can config in syslog.conf almost everything:

It's the statistics, run "mailstats" to see them.

There is more than one way.
$ less /usr/share/sendmail/cf/README
