Right.  But this was the second time [[i _think_].  My friend fixed it
by rebuilding a couple of utilities, one was SpamAssassin.  I found that
SA was entirely missing [??!??].  After centuries of fmessing around
downloading out-of-date and otherwise missing source code---this thanks
to using my desktop KDE/Gnome utilities and copying then over
to /usr/ports/distfiles and finally building SpamAssassin  and updating
lots of other stuff, mail worked.  

I didn't believe it at first.  I sent a slew of test messages back <->
forth to me on magnesium.net and other places.  When my mail reached
freebsd.-test, i knew things worked.  

It's live and learn; it's try until you want to punch your first thru
the wall [then don't and focus at the problem at hand.]  I am trying to
unite FreeBSD and Ubuntu.  It's time to give away my old Dell and then
to see if I can lose the pfSense firewall.  I figure on several months'
worth of head-banging... .
