Not sure I completely follow you Alexander.  Are you saying that by
enabling the TSLMTA / SMTPS , that *disables* the normal mta daemon?  I
do however need the MSA, but in an unauthenticated mode, as my home ISP
blocks port 25.  I was under the impression after reading the
sendmail.mc that the MSA would be a non-authenticated operation.
Perhaps I need to go back and re-read the sendmail.mc.  Yes, as I recall
on 4.9 BSD, the choice between ipv4 and ipv6 were two separate options..
That is what is running on my mailserver now.  One other question while
on the subject of mail, I believe I did a yum search for qpopper, or
some other pop agent, and nothing shows up.  I did find the latest
version of qpopper at the Qualcomm website, I believe.  I assume there
is no available pop agent in the base distribution of CentOS is there?
