Description Alaeddin A. Aydiner 2001-04-25 23:43:53 EDT
The sendmail port options seem to be adjustable by editing
/etc/mail/sendmail.mc. In my case, I needed to get email from
the network and hence commented out the following in sendmail.mc:

DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=, Name=MTA')

However, after wasting some time, I found out that the options are
hardcoded in /etc/sendmail.cf as follows:

O DaemonPortOptions=Port=smtp,Addr=, Name=MTA

This is very confusing and I think it should be controlled
by sendmail.mc.

After editing sendmail.mc, did you run m4 to create a new sendmail.cf file?
Sendmail.mc controls the generation of the sendmail.cf file. Any changes made
there will have no effect until you generate a new .cf file and restart sendmail.
The syntax should be included in the comments at the top of sendmail.mc, and
should be similar to:
 m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc > /etc/sendmail.cf
