Hmmm.  Then this is probably the problem...

If the remote server is an Exchange system, I am not sure if using it as
an MSP in `' is supposed to work.

Try resetting the `msp' value in `' to:

    FEATURE(`msp', `[]')dnl

and set `SMART_HOST' in `' (not in the
`' file):

    define(`SMART_HOST', `')

Then you should enable the `submit' and `msp_queue' sendmail processes
in `/etc/rc.conf' too:
