Correct, you should have answered "yes" to this question. In addition,
/etc/rc.conf has at least four variables that enable pieces of
sendmail functionality. To ensure that I'm not running any part of
sendmail, I make sure that all of them are set to "NO".


     $ grep "sendmail.*enable=" /etc/defaults/rc.conf

To get a list.
