    sendmail is nothing but a SMTP server, so it's not like you have to do any reconfiguring for that.

    However, can't you set your Mozilla Mail to use the sendmail binary directly instead of connecting to its SMTP port?

    thanx for your answer

    While i dont know why i didnt think of this but after reading your post it dawned on me the the smtp was running on a port. So I checked out my services file and found it worked on port 25 that solved my problem thanx.
