Re: SMTP connection went away?

+- My mail system seems to be working since the upgrade to hamm/frozen.
+- However, I just tried "telnet localhost 25" and got "connection
+- refused".  I had noticed after the upgrade that /etc/inetd.conf had
+- line (note the "#"):

+- # smtp    stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd
/usr/sbin/in.smtpd (
will be restored by smail postinst)

My /etc/inetd.conf looked the same after I upgraded smail to
(in bo; I don't know which version I had before) and smtp refused to work. 

Additionally, the files /etc/aliases, /etc/smail/config,
/etc/smail/directors, /etc/smail/routers and /etc/smail/transports
were replaced by empty files.

When I changed the line in /etc/inetd.conf to
smtp    stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/in.smtpd
smail listened again at port 25 but refused to know neither local users
nor remote machines. 

How can I convince smail to accept my existence again?
