Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have read loads of info over the past 2 weeks on this but just can not seem to get my head around it, lol
to the point...
i can not get smtp auth to work!
the output from this command " sendmail -d0.1 -bv root | grep SASL "
is.. PIPELINING SASL SCANF STARTTLS TCPWRAPPERS USERDB USE_LDAP_INIT
and shows sasl is talking to us. but when i used this command ehlo...
250-linuxserver Hello [192.168.2.115], pleased to meet you
no auth shows.
this is my sendmail conf setting as is now which i have change so many times in the last 2 weeks. divert(-1)
dnl This is the macro config file used to generate the /etc/sendmail.cf
dnl file. If you modify the file you will have to regenerate the
dnl /etc/sendmail.cf by running this macro config through the m4
dnl m4 /etc/sendmail.mc > /etc/sendmail.cf
dnl You will need to have the sendmail-cf package installed for this to
dnl define delivery mode: interactive, background, or queued
dnl define(`confDELIVERY_MODE', `i')
dnl virtusertable: redirect incoming mail to virtual domain to particular user or domain
FEATURE(`virtusertable',`hash -o /etc/mail/virtusertable')dnl
dnl genericstable: rewrite sender address for outgoing mail
dnl FEATURE(dnsbl, `blackholes.mail-abuse.org', `Rejected - see')dnl
dnl FEATURE(dnsbl, `dialups.mail-abuse.org', `Dialup - see ')dnl
dnl FEATURE(dnsbl, `', `Open spam relay - see)dnl
dnl SASL Configuration
dnl extract from
dnl Next two lines are for SMTP Authentication
dnl TRUST_AUTH_MECH(`LOGIN PLAIN')dnl
dnl define(`confAUTH_MECHANISMS', `LOGIN PLAIN')dnl
dnl Next line stops sendmail from allowing auth without encryption
dnl define(`confAUTH_OPTIONS', `Ap')dnl
dnl # <added>
TRUST_AUTH_MECH(`DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN PLAIN')dnl
define(`confAUTH_MECHANISMS', `DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN PLAIN')dnl
dnl # </added>
dnl STARTTLS configuration
dnl extract from
dnl define(`CERT_DIR', `MAIL_SETTINGS_DIR`'certs')dnl
dnl define(`confCACERT_PATH', `CERT_DIR')dnl
dnl define(`confCACERT', `CERT_DIR/CAcert.pem')dnl
dnl define(`confSERVER_CERT', `CERT_DIR/MYcert.pem')dnl
dnl define(`confSERVER_KEY', `CERT_DIR/MYkey.pem')dnl
dnl define(`confCLIENT_CERT', `CERT_DIR/MYcert.pem')dnl
dnl define(`confCLIENT_KEY', `CERT_DIR/MYkey.pem')dnl
dnl Uncomment next lines to hide identity of mail serve
dnl define(`confSMTP_LOGIN_MSG', `$j server ready at $b')dnl
If someone can just point me in the right direction i'll have another go,
Apart from auth not working the rest of sendmail works just fine.
(kinda think linux is like having a wife) u know what i mean, lol.
