Dear Matt,

Please don't send a new mail by replying to an old one. This can cause
your mail to be missed because it ends up in some thread at the end of
the list. And if you do then remove the content. 600 lines that have
nothing to do with you question is a waist of bandwith and makes the
list a whole lot larger and slower.

As for you question... Please look at the FreeBSD handbook and go to the
sendmail section. Your anwers it there. Don't forget to reboot afther.
