About sendmail?


I was reading a simple sendmail setup from http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-9962 redhat official link.
I am confused about the line:

Code:
dnl # DAEMON_OPTIONS ('Port=smtp, Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')
Should we remove dnl # or keep it for Sendmail to send and receive mail to other hosts other than localhost.

What the line states?

Pls help

In another doc it says :
Code:
To enable SMTP authentication, uncomment the following in /etc/mail/sendmail.mc by removing the dnl at the beginning of the line:

define(`confAUTH_OPTIONS', `A p')dnl
...
TRUST_AUTH_MECH(`EXTERNAL DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN PLAIN')dnl
define(`confAUTH_MECHANISMS', `EXTERNAL GSSAPI DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN PLAIN')dnl
...
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=submission, Name=MSA, M=Ea')dnl
Should we uncomment or comment out for the process to make it happen

Do You Mean I should write:
Code:
dnl #DAEMON_OPTIONS ('Port=smtp, Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA')
But its simply commented.What Does it mean then?
