Qmail and SMTP Authentication

I've set up qmail 1.03 on a Slackware server of mine, and I have got it working - however I would like people to have to authenticate before sending through the server.

I have looked at qmail-smtpd-auth and tried to get it to work ( I have followed the instructions, including the entry in my /etc/inetd.conf file - but SMTP just continues without requiring any authentication!

I understand checkpassword uses the /etc/passwd file, all my accounts are set up correctly with passwords and everything, so I have no idea what the problem could be!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
