Default Postfix error on 7.1

OK, I'm normally really good at fixing this stuff but I have googled for days and tried several different configs to no avail.

I keep getting this message from postfix:

Code:
Jan 28 15:01:02 tcci postfix/sendmail[880]: fatal: usage: sendmail [options]
Jan 28 15:06:03 tcci postfix/sendmail[950]: fatal: usage: sendmail [options]
Jan 28 15:11:02 tcci postfix/sendmail[1025]: fatal: usage: sendmail [options]
Jan 28 15:16:03 tcci postfix/sendmail[1095]: fatal: usage: sendmail [options]
Jan 28 15:21:02 tcci postfix/sendmail[1157]: fatal: usage: sendmail [options]
Jan 28 15:26:02 tcci postfix/sendmail[1240]: fatal: usage: sendmail [options]
Jan 28 15:31:02 tcci postfix/sendmail[1302]: fatal: usage: sendmail [options]
I have tried several options in my rc.conf including:

Code:
sendmail_enable="YES"
sendmail_flags="-bd"
sendmail_outbound_enable="NO"
sendmail_submit_enable="NO"
sendmail_msp_queue_enable="NO"
and this:

Code:
sendmail_enable="NONE"
After the above I created the symlink for the startup script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d

Code:
ln -s /usr/local/sbin/postfix postfix.sh
Still no joy.

I have other postfix configs running on 6.2 without problems.

Anyone have any ideas?

-Tim

If you are using Postfix, then all the sendmail_*_enable options in rc.conf need to be set to NO.

Then add postfix_enable="YES".

See the pkg-message file in the postfix ports directory for info on disabling the sendmail-specific periodic scripts from running.

My guess is the sendmail_flags line is causing the issue.

Also make sure /etc/mail/mailer.conf is properly set up, for postfix it should be:

Code:
sendmail        /usr/local/sbin/sendmail
send-mail       /usr/local/sbin/sendmail
mailq   /usr/local/sbin/sendmail
newaliases      /usr/local/sbin/sendmail
hoststat        /usr/bin/true
purgestat       /usr/bin/true

Thanks guys, I'll check it out and let you know what I find. FYI, the smtp is working even with the error.
