First, keep in mind that these parameters only define how sendmail starts when the system is
Second, stop any sendmail processes.
Third, start sendmail with the correct cf (config) file. It should be /etc/mail/freebsd.cf.
It is created from /etc/mail/freebsd.mc. The former is for sendmail only (do not peek) and the
latter is for you to read. When submit_only is ON, freebsd.submit.cf (generated from
freebsd.submit.mc) is used. You should investigate the mc files and learn how to generate cf
files from them.
