Since my linux box is a desktop machine do I actually need sendmail running? Alll my mail comes and goes via remote pop3 & smtp servers with my host.
So how would I stop it running at boot?

You could do this:
Disable it in /etc/inetd.conf if its controlled from there or move the /etc/rc.d/rc.sendmail to eg. /tmp or delete it, or just chmod it as non-executable

If you have inetd or xinetd running, then change their config files. Otherwise:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail.init stop"Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."

I don't know what systems these folks are using, but in Slackware 9.1 you should (as root)Code:
chmod -x /etc/rc.d/rc.sendmail
Hope this helps,
