I see that on my home server, but only when I submit from the office, not 
when I submit from home.

Has anyone set up a Red Hat server to run dual sendmail instances, one 
authenticated submission-only, that passes off to the transfer instance? 
What's needed in the mc files and initscript to do that? (I currently just 
have the one mc and have it listening on both ports.) I could figure it out 
myself but if someone else has already wiki'd the setup details, that would 
be a great resource.
