Question Sending email from Web Application


I'm now having a study on a web application development which may trigger a function to send email. This is an intranet web application which run on Linux.

It is found that the system will prompt in asking password for the internet mail account when the send email function is triggered (for user authenication).

Please advise if there is any setting on Linux which can skip the user authenication process while send email (like an outsider)?

i am no where near an expert on this, but i do know that in recent versions of linux "RELAYING " is turned off to prevent spam.
this is a good thing. but bad for you.. if you find a way around this i would like to know.

my only idea on this is to use CGI and run a script as nobody to send mail from the nobody account
