Ok...sendmail isn't running...and below is the result of "svstat
/var/service/*/log"...it's under /var since that's where the tutorial
said to put it...before I really knew what I was doing.

/var/service/pop3d/log: up (pid 47863) 533524 seconds
/var/service/qmail/log: up (pid 47867) 533524 seconds
/var/service/smtpd/log: up (pid 47865) 533524 seconds

Did you stop the sendmail process? It could be taking over SMTP on 25
qmail cannot run...

What is the output of svstat /service/*  and
svstat /service/*/log

You will need to do this as root.

Please respond to list only, thanks... I'll get it from there.
