FreeBSD I've been using computers since I was quite young and have been using Unixlike OSes for about two years. Most of my life I've used Macs and only started using Windows and Unixlike OSes recently for programming. I'm good at learning OSes as long as they are documented. I've been using FreeBSD for about a year and a half.

Sendmail config in rc.conf

Hi,

I just want to mention that setting sendmail_enable="NONE" without having a other mailer will cause your /var/spool/clientmqueue to be filled up with crontab messages. It is wiser to set sendmail_enable="NO" which causes sendmail to listen only to localhost and spool messages from cron etc.

I had a friend who also set sendmail_enable to NONE, he ran out of inodes on his var slice. So strange things started to happen.
