OK...the out put of that command gave me:
sendmail  12817    root    3u  IPv4 4777305       TCP
*:submission (LISTEN)

This is when I did what it looks like you're supposed
to do for the .mc file and activate this line:

DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=submission, Name=MSA, M=Ea')dnl

I rebuild/restart sendmail and no other server will
talk to mine on port 25.  The .mc file says it will
listen on both.  Is there something else I'm supposed
to activate/deactivate?
