User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.5+) Gecko/20011111

Description of problem:
Sendmail is run on runlevels 2-5 by default.  It's not a good idea to run
an unconfigured MTA by default.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -i sendmail-8.11.6-3.i386.rpm
2. chkconfig --list sendmail


Actual Results:  sendmail        0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on   
5:on    6:off


Expected Results:  sendmail        0:off   1:off   2:off   3:off   4:off  
5:off   6:off


Additional info:

The default runlevels are set in /etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail
Instead of

# chkconfig: 2345 80 30

use

# chkconfig: - 80 30
