For sendmail, you may not quite be following what running it as a daemon
(running all the time as a background process) is all about: As I
indicated in my earlier reply, doing the latter makes your machine be
constantly reachable for _inbound_ SMTP mail delivery.
If your machine isn't going to be receiving mail as a peer from other
SMTP servers on the Internet, then there's no need to run it in daemon
mode. in which case you might as well disable this service.
As to printing, _certainly_ you can print to servers on other hosts. See
