I've gotten a bit further this weekend but I'm not 'there' yet. I could sucessfully send a e-mail by using 'mail' as normal user at my server. Allthough when I tried to send an e-mail from my laptop with my server as smtp server it kept prompting for my password and this is what was displayed in /var/log/maillog :

Many thanks,


Telnet to port 25 on the mail server. Once connected, issue an EHLO command and look for the AUTH line - for example:

# telnet localhost 25
Trying ::1...
Connected to localhost.servername.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 mail.servername.com ESMTP Sendmail 8.13.4/8.13.4; Mon, 7 Aug 2006 13:11:37 -0500 (CDT)

EHLO localhost

If you don't see PLAIN LOGIN, you have a problem in how Sendmail was compiled.
Hmm I guess that sould be the problem then:

[EMAIL PROTECTED] telnet localhost 25
Trying ::1...
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.eu.org

I compiled sendmail with the following options:

[EMAIL PROTECTED] cat /etc/make.conf
# SASL (cyrus-sasl v2) sendmail build flags...
SENDMAIL_CFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include -DSASL=2
SENDMAIL_LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/lib
SENDMAIL_LDADD=-lsasl2
# Adding to enable alternate port (smtps) for sendmail...
SENDMAIL_CFLAGS+= -D_FFR_SMTP_SSL
# added by use.perl 2006-03-02 22:35:07
PERL_VER=5.8.8
PERL_VERSION=5.8.8

What should I do fix this ? Appart from those lines in /etc/make.conf I didn't change anything regarding to the build of sendmail
