I just set up a new box with fbsd-5.1 and it appears that the email never 
leaves the box, or at least it never arrives at its intended destination. 
I have set up previous versions of freebsd and never had a problem sending 
mail with out any configuration of sendmail. The machine does connect and 
browse the internet. My rc.conf has sendmail_enable=NO. So it should be 
able to send, but not receive, which is what I want.I have included the 
mail -v messages below. I have tried to send to 4 different addresses, 
including the freebsd-test list, no messages show up at any addresses.
Any idea why mail is not being sent?
