In particular, sendmail starts with priority 80 and spf-milter with 79. But, spf-milter always dies and sendmail doesn't accept any email. If i then do "service spf-milter restart" the milter comes right up runs and sendmail starts accepting emails. Wierd. I'm going to play with the startup priority (79, 80, 81) for spf-milter and report back on my success (if I have any).

(no, there is no information in either the messages or maillog logfiles, I've looked, as to why spf-milter dies upon initial startup.)

Which spf-milter package are you using? Perl, C, other? Pre-built or
made yourself?

The one I use definitely starts up before sendmail and doesn't bomb out
straight away.

I think its yours, Paul. B^) B^)

But I may have been trying to upgrade a previous version that was not an RPM that I installed a while back directly from spf.pobox.com....

Yes, I have modified the chkconfig priority trying to get it to work right for me. I think I remember having to do the same with the previous version too....
