With intention I have not included the lines of the tread into my

Can first the OP (Original Poster), clarify what he/she wants todo
exactly. If it is, fetching mails *from* his/her FreeBSD server to some
other device, then sendmail is not involved here at all, but setting up
some IMAP or POP3 server on the FreeBSD box.

If he/she wants send mail from the device to the FreeBSD server as 1st
MX hop, then ofc he/she must setup a MTA on this server.

So, let's first clarify, about what the issue is exactly.

Aus "Nie wieder Krieg!" wurde "Nie wieder Krieg ohne Deutschlands Truppen"
The "No wars anymore!" changed now to "No wars anymore without German battle groups!"
El "¡Nunca jamás guerra!" ha cambiado a "¡Nunca jamás guerra sin tropas alemanas!"
