Default Sendmail, procmail and Open BSD

Hello everybody,

I'm trying to set up an anti-spam filter on OpenBSD. For that purpose, i use sendmail to transfer mail to procmail, which is gonna do local copy and then relay it to spamd.

Everything is almost set up, but i'm unable to set up the mail relay between sendmail and procmail.

Here is my file :

VERSIONID(`$Id:,v 8.12 2002/05/24 09:06:00 sm Exp $')
define('LOCAL_MAILER_ARGS', 'procmail -a $h -d $u')dnl
FEATURE(`local_procmail', `/usr/bin/procmail', `procmail -m /etc/procmailrc')
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Addr=,Port=8888,Name=MTA' )

and this is the error i get in /var/mail/maillog

Feb 3 00:06:37 spaminator sendmail[11540]: o12N57UK011540: from=root, size=1134, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<201002022305.o12N57UK011540@spaminator.spam inator.local>, relay=root@localhost
Feb 3 00:06:37 spaminator sendmail[11540]: o12N57UK011540: to=root, ctladdr=root (0/0), delay=00:01:30, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=31134, relay=[] [], dsn=4.0.0, stat=Deferred: Connection refused by []

If anybody have been through this or have any idea, you're welcome. It has been few days i'm working on it and i'm sure i've made a stupid mistake somewhere but i can't find it.

Here are the logfile for when i start sendmail with this command : sendmail -Am -bd

Feb 3 00:17:18 spaminator sendmail[11538]: gethostbyaddr( failed: 1
Feb 3 00:17:18 spaminator sendmail[11538]: daemon invoked without full pathname; kill -1 won't work
