Default Scalix + Sendmail smtp port alteration

Hi,

I have scalix (sendmail) installed on my server and it is working very good but I need to change the smtp listening port because I am thinking that my sendmail is being used as a spam engine.

Can you please let me know what/how I need to configure in order to change the smtp port?

Thanks in advanced for your help.

It was a long time ago i used sendmail but if i remember correctly you should find the relevant information in you sendmail.cf file. Something with Port=smtp or DaemonPortOptions=Port=25.

Thanks for your reply.

I have tried that using port 5025 but it didn't work for me... it will not send emails when I change it to this port number.

Do you I need to configure something else please regarding to scalix?
