Default More troubles with major update

I'm having a series of problems following a major update from several
mnths ago.

A major problem right now is that 127.0.0.1 has started rejected mail
connections. That is, sendmail cannot send mail even locally.

Sendmail itself has not been updated.... fetchmail has but looking at
the ouput of qlop --list I see `pam' itself, and something called
`pambase' that has been updated several times since Oct 26.

I remember having trouble with pam relates stuff way back somewhere.

Is that likely to be the source of my troubles?

At the end I've listed what pkgs have been updated... but I need a
push at getting to the bottom of the problem.

I'm not interested in switching MTAs and anyway that has not been
altered. Something else is causing the problem.

A typical refused connection looks like:

(verbose ouput from mailx -v)

echo date|mailx -v -s test reader
reader... Connecting to [127.0.0.1] via relay...
reader... Deferred: Connection refused by [127.0.0.1]

Nothing at all is written to mail.log. Although logs show many lines
from yesterday and day before that system was overloaded.

Oct 30 22:28:26 reader sm-mta[1801]:
rejecting connections on daemon MSA: load average: 12

Oh, and rsyslog (my system logger) has crashed repeatedly and will not
run. That was also update, and reinstalled too.

------- --------- ---=--- --------- --------

Sorry this list is quite long... the update has stretched over several
days and is really two updates:

Thanks for your input... next time I won't assume readers would take
