Sendmail = mind boggling

I've always steered clear of using Sendmail (prefering Exim), but I thought
I would give it a try and am having real difficulties with something I think
should be simple.

I want to keep running Exim on port 25. I want Sendmail to run on a
different port. So I am trying to use the  "O DaemonPortOptions=Port=2525"
option. However, I have 6 cf files in /etc/mail -,,,,  I've tried all sorts of combinations of adding the above option
to these files, but whenever I try to start Sendmail this error:
sm-mta[52968]: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root): opendaemonsocket: daemon Daemon0:
cannot bind: Address already in use.

Which file(s) am I supposed to put this option into? I just don't
understand. Is it correct, also, that I have 6 cf files? I set this up as
per the handbook. At this rate I know why I've always used Exim :-)
