Sendmail will not listen on 25

Hi all,

Im running RedHat EL4, 2.6.9-22

I have already commented in the-
dnl # DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp,Addr=, Name=MTA')dnl

and restarted sendmail.

Yet nestat -an | grep :25 still only gives me-
tcp 0 0* LISTEN

Of course, only listening on localhost, I cant receive SMTP.

Iptables are off. Does anybody have a guess as to why I'm not listening on all interfaces.

you need to regenerate the file if you edited try:

(if is in /etc/mail):

make -C /etc/mail
