did those steps:
1 cd /etc/mail
edited freebsd.mc and changed:
cp freebsd.mc web1.prosoundweb.com.mc
/usr/share/sendmail/cf/m4/cf.m4 web1.prosoundweb.com.mc >
m4: web1.prosoundweb.com.mc at line 49:
include(/usr/share/sendmail/cf/domain/prosoundweb.com.m4): No such file
*** Error code 1
this is still looking for a prosoundweb.com.m4 file in the domain area.
is there a step I am missing somewhere?
I copied generic.m4 to prosoundweb.com.m4 and went through 'make all
and I am still timing out talking to the host:
Operation timed out with bhost1.broadjam.net.
so obviously I am not done here....
