Change this to:

DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp, Name=MTA')dnl (note the first character that appears to be a quote is a grave accent which is the unshifted tilde key)
After saving the file, type in:
make -C /etc/mail

Simply place a "dnl " in front of the DAEMON_OPTIONS line. This is what the comment above says.

Alex:

Does the dnl mean "Do Not Load"? I thought you needed this line, but you don't need the address (Addr) parameter. When we set up both linux and *NIX, we add this line to prevent being an open proxy. I'm definately learning here.
