How do i disable the system Sendmail on FreeBSD?

If you're using FreeBSD 6.0 or newer, you can control sendmail very easily by adding variables to your /etc/rc.conf file. Looking at the /etc/rc.d/sendmail file, it seems there are four variables used to control sendmail:

  * sendmail_enable
  * sendmail_submit_enable
  * sendmail_outbound_enable
  * sendmail_msp_queue_enable

Setting sendmail_enable to NO will disable all four of those options.
