Hmm I guess that sould be the problem then:
root at Fstaals$ telnet localhost 25
Connected to localhost.eu.org
Escape character is '^]'.
220 Fstaals.net ESMTP Sendmail 8.13.3/8.13.3; Mon, 7 Aug 2006 20:31:30
250-Fstaals.net Hello localhost.eu.org [127.0.0.1], pleased to meet you
I compiled sendmail with the following options:
root at Fstaals$ cat /etc/make.conf
# SASL (cyrus-sasl v2) sendmail build flags...
# Adding to enable alternate port (smtps) for sendmail...
# added by use.perl 2006-03-02 22:35:07
What should I do fix this ? Appart from those lines in /etc/make.conf I
didn't change anything regarding to the build of sendmail
