Re: Change Sendmail Port?

Umm...I meant I would like to change the port that users send mail

thinking port 587 for sending, but does that mean every server coming
into my server has to know that?  I am running into the problem with
roving users that have home ISPs that are blocking port 25 from their
lines.  So, users have to go in and change their mail servers when they
get home, then change back when back in the office.  Does that make a
little more sense?

Users should always use 587. 25 is for server-to-server.

Use "lsof -i | grep sendmail" to see if your server is listening on both ports.
