Reed, I'm not expert enough to comment on what you've
top-posted here (the contents of src.conf related to
your needs). It does look like both of us forgot to
do the normal "reply-all" so I'm posting this back
to the FBSD Questions list. I will mention that
not having sendmail, you may break something (but
I'm not sure if that particular knob means that there
will be no local mailer at all). Cron(8), for example,
uses a local mailer to notify you of cronjob output,
and having cron work is a Good Thing(tm) in my experience
as a sysadmin.
I came to MIT to get an education for myself and a diploma for my mother.
