So i googled a bunch to try and find out why I can't receive mail, and apparently it is because a default sendmail installation only binds to localhost and not public ip.
So I went into ALL .cf and .mc files in /etc/Mail to find the line that I needed to comment out, but to no avail.
My config files do not contain such a line.
Then I read in the freebsd handbook that on a default freebsd installation, I should at least be able to receive email to [email protected].
However not even that works, even though I'm running my own dns for the domain that my box uses.
I have an MX record in my master zone file for the domain, and an a-record that points to the box main ip.
If anyone has any ideas feel free to give me a holler.
did you restart sendmail after the config changes ?

Also, yesterday I received a google mailer daemon error that the emails could not be sent to the recipient.
Today after I made some changes it seems like I get no such error.
I have edited both local-host-names and virtusertable to the appropriate values, but I have a feeling sendmail is actually receiving the mail only it;'s not sending it to the appropriate inboxes.
So, if anyone has any ideas on that I'll be googling to try and find a solution.
