I'm having the same hangup. (mac os x v.10.2.6) Sendmail is running, and I've executed the "chmod g-w / /Users" command, but when I try to telnet "localhost 25" I get this response:


[gfowler:~] gabrielf% telnet localhost 25
Trying ::1...
telnet: connect to address ::1: Connection refused
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 gfowler.local ESMTP Sendmail 8.12.9/8.10.2; Tue, 26 Aug 2003 20:06:27 -0700 (PDT)



What's the problem? In my limited understanding, telnet is trying to establish a connection to my own machine through port 25, the default mail port, but can't do it through 'localhost', it tries '127.0.0.1', the IP address it knows itself by, and then connects to 'localhost'. But this response doesn't match the one in the article, so I'm unsure how to proceed.


PLEASE CLUE ME IN!!!!


Thanks.
