Hmmm... Don't know precisely about pop before sendmail, but setting up
sendmail so that it requires authentication before it will relay a
message from a "foreign" location is quite do-able, and can easily be
integrated with the standard system sendmail.

Probably the easiest way to get going is to follow the instructions at
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/smtp- auth.html

The handbook seems to be missing some instructions. I tried what it says and sendmail does not accept authentication requests. There is an error in the maillog about /usr/local/etc/sasldb.db having group permissions. Changing that to 700 changes the error to one where it can't access the file. Changing the owner of that to root eliminates the error messages. Sendmail then acknowledges that it has auth capability. But it doesn't authenticate anything. A ktrace shows that it tries to access a pipe in /var/pwcheck/pwcheck. The directory exists, but it is completely empty. Something else is needed to get whatever its trying to communicate with up.
