All I want to do is have the MTA listen on port 1025 and have no
sendmail process listen on the server interface.  That's being done by assp
which proxies messages to  Unfortunately, I haven't been able
to figure out how to turn off the default.  Sockstat shows:

root     sendmail   1672  4  tcp4   *:25                  *:*
root     sendmail   1672  5  tcp6   *:25                  *:*
root     sendmail   1672  6  tcp4        *:*
root     sendmail   1672  7  tcp4   111.222.333.444:587   *:*

The relevant mc entries are:

DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Name=IPv4, Family=inet')
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Name=IPv6, Family=inet6, Modifiers=O')
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=1025, Addr=, Name=MTA')
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=587, Addr= 111.222.333.444, Name=MSA, M=E')

The MSA isn't strictly necessary now but I thought might have a future use.

So, what am I missing?  How do I turn *:25 off so that when assp goes down (as
it frequently does) I'm not running an open relay (all user/domain validation
is done in assp).

Any pointers in the right direction appreciated.
