Sendmail 8.14.5/8.14.5 on fbsd-9.1R (EC2)

All I want to do is have the MTA listen on 127.0.0.1 port 1025 and have no
sendmail process listen on the server interface. That's being done by assp
which proxies messages to 127.0.0.1:1025. Unfortunately, I haven't been able
to figure out how to turn off the default. Sockstat shows:
root sendmail 1672 4 tcp4 *:25 *:*
root sendmail 1672 5 tcp6 *:25 *:*
root sendmail 1672 6 tcp4 127.0.0.1:1025 *:*
root sendmail 1672 7 tcp4 111.222.333.444:587 *:*
The relevant mc entries are:
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Name=IPv6, Family=inet6, Modifiers=O')
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=1025, Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=587, Addr= 111.222.333.444, Name=MSA, M=E')
The MSA isn't strictly necessary now but I thought might have a future use.
So, what am I missing? How do I turn *:25 off so that when assp goes down (as
it frequently does) I'm not running an open relay (all user/domain validation
is done in assp).
Any pointers in the right direction appreciated.
