To assist the OP on this issue, check out this link: http://www.sendmail.org/~ca/email/auth.html#DefaultAuthInfo Within that site, it will give you assistance in setting up sendmail to act as an smtp client using smtp-auth. <snippet> DefaultAuthInfo (confDEF_AUTH_INFO) specifies a file in which the authorization identity, the authentication identity, the secret, and the realm to be used for authentication are stored. This file must be in a safe directory and unreadable by everyone except root (or TrustedUser). It is used when sendmail acts as a client to authenticate itself to a server. Example: admin admin MySecretPassword example.domain Notes: all data is case sensitive (usually) and the entire line is used in each case (including any white space!). recommended filename: /etc/mail/default-auth-info </snippet> I trust this is what the OP's original intentions were. -- Micheal Patterson TSG Network Administration 405-917-0600 Confidentiality Notice: This e-mail message, including any attachments, is for the sole use of the intended recipient(s) and may contain confidential and privileged information.
