    You could try

    nano /etc/mail/sendmail.mc
    comment out (or deletd) the following line's:
    DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')

    m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc > /etc/mail/sendmail.cf
    /etc/init.d/sendmail restart

    What are you trying to accomplish? Is the mail or mailx binary not sufficient?

    If you could elaborate on what you are trying to do I cna help.
    dd if=/dev/swc666 of=/dev/wyze

    it just does not send e-mails. when i do service sendmail start it seems to work but when i send an e-mail it never arrives.

    EDIT: when i run the exact same program on debian everything is working perfectly! so the script is ok!

    anybody? i ve been searching for a few hours for a solution and still no luck!

    Don't post twice in a row, edit your previous post instead.

    Regards your problem, have you checked that the sendmail process is running and that it is listening on the appropriate interface? On BT4 Beta it listens on loopback only by default.
