I hate sendmail but I love FreeBSD and I simply not use it and use Postfix.

Not sure what you mean. I use Postfix in FBSD for years now.

First describe what problems you are having exactly. General questions
will only get you general answers.

Basically you can simply disable Sendmail and enable Postfix and it
works perfectly.

There is a general recipe for it but YMMV so be more specific and
perhaps we can be more useful.
