Well Giorgos, For starters the advice in that section is wrong for 2 reasons:
pwcheck_method: passwd does not work on sasl2 and FreeBSD 6.X You don't want to use sasl1 for many reasons, you want to use sasl2 define(`confDEF_AUTH_INFO', `/etc/mail/auth-info')dnl is deprecated. Fortunately the section has the link for the Sendmail auth which has better directions. Note: "... Notice: the default 8.12 configuration file causes the option DefaultAuthInfo to fail since the ruleset authinfo is in the .cf file. If you really want to use DefaultAuthInfo (it is deprecated) then you have to remove the ruleset. DaemonPortOptions (DAEMON_OPTIONS()) has now suboptions (called modifiers), one of which is `a'. This tells the daemon to require authentication for all connections to it. ..." I think it's been a while since you used that section to setup SMTP AUTH. Note also the poster wants to know how to make his Sendmail auth into another mailer, he doesen't want to setup his own system to accept auth connections.
