I saw that this question was asked before in some google caches, but the
previous answer isn't working for me.
The previous answer said to remove sendmail from rc.conf. Well, rc.conf
doesn't make any references to sendmail, but it does refer to
/etc/defaults/rc.conf, which indicates that sendmail defaults to off, yet
sendmail is spitting out errors on my console so it obviously ain't off.

That is what the errors read. Not sure what it means, other than that sendmail
is running, which is bad since this machine is supposed to be a firewall.
