Hmmm... not sure. There are some very good how-to documents around and
some are specifically for FreeBSD, but I don't think many include the
rcng info that would give you the rc.conf entries.

The move to rcng is fairly recent, which is why I suggested that reading
the /usr/local/etc/rc.d/blah.sh scripts is a good idea at the moment.

I hate to say this, but google is worth a try. Try using *FreeBSD mail
toaster* as the search terms - assuming you're interested in virtual
hosting of mail domains. I hesitate to recommend any particular one,
because it's largely a matter of taste. The Matt Simerson mail toaster
thingie is highly regarded by a lot of people, but I don't get on with
it because it's a bit of a black box unless you research it extensively,
and because I take a slightly different approach to running qmail.
However, the documentation contains some really useful stuff.

The docs produced by the authors of courier are also pretty good:
