I've been running my own sendmail based server for many years.
I'm currently running FreeBSD 10.3, with base sendmail.
It works, but lacks SASL support.
I found a mention of package sendmail+tls+sasl2 and thought I'd try that.
After all, I have a running sendmail, how hard could it be?
pkg install sendmail+tls+sasl2 "worked", in that it installed stuff and
report any error messages.
I follow the first instruction:
you should add in /etc/make.conf:
So far, so good.
Later, in the printed instructions, it says:
To activate sendmail as your default mailer, call the target 'mailer.conf':
$ cd /usr/ports/mail/sendmail && make mailer.conf
Your '/etc/mail/mailer.conf' should look like this:
# Execute the "real" sendmail program, named /usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail
I didn't do the make mailer.conf, because I don't understand why
stuff in the ports tree is being referenced. This is a pkg, not
And then there's this:
ls -l /usr/local/bin/sendmail
ls: /usr/local/bin/sendmail: No such file or directory
So that's kind of worrying.
I go to /usr/local/share/sendmail/cf and read the README.
It says to do this:
This email is free of malware because I run Linux.
