Pete's right. This may or may not help you, but I found a program called pop-before-smtp that I use for Postfix that worked wonders for me. I had to jump through a ton of hoops to get it up and running the way I wanted, but it helped immensely. Give it a check and let me know if that helps you out. Pete's suggestion works great too and might be the better way to go, but I thought I'd add my 2 cents.

hi guys, thanks for your replay but only now I can read your message!

Hey Peter, now I'll get the how-To you suggested me, and I hope to succeed...

my actual situation is :
before to use SMTP AUTH I thought to install POP-BEFORE-SMTP because
I read in various articles that was fine end simple to configuring. And I try
to install it .. but during the download of Perl's script (for make complie of P.B.S. possible )happened many errors of missing files..
so I change the way and I trye to install SASL.
I download the correct version of Cyrus SASL and SendMail, follewed many how-to founded in the web , but without result...
Now I trying with the Peter's link.

p.s. thanks for your support !

Hope this works out for you! Linux has made my life so much easier (I'm a network admin by trade) and now instead of our uptimes in days or weeks (with windows), our uptime is in months (had to shut down twice: once for moving the servers to a new rack, and once for a power outage that lasted longer then our 8 hour UPS's. )

Glad to hear you got it up and running Marco! SMTP Auth can be difficult to set up (it was for me. ) and once you do, it makes your life a lot easier when you have roaming users with laptops and such. Anyways, if you have any other problems or questions, feel free to come on back here and we'll fix you right up!

Well first off, do you have a domain name that you bought from a registrar? (register.com, networksolutions.com, etc)? Once you buy one (around 10-35 USD per year) point the domain to your ip address.

Hello zPERL63,

I dont't known your situation about mail management and don't known
if you already have a mail server or not.

As says -tbeehler-, the first thing must to be own 1 static IP that point
to your local machine that will became your serverMail.. But if you say that
already you known the domain.name of your server mean you :

-have a IP address that point to your Server
-have define correctly DNS of your server and BIND service with
forward and reverse correct files.

If you already do this you are in a good position and with still few work
you configure mailServer.

keep me informed

Well you can use a program called Webmin (www.webmin.com) that will make your life a lot easier. It's a web based administration tool. Once you install that (optional), you can either use a program called postfix or sendmail for your smtp traffic. Just out of curiousity, what distribution are you using? Fedora? Suse? Slackware? Let us know and we'll get you fixed right up.

I am using Red Hat Enterprise WS 3.0 (the last one).
I am using Linux for PERL and test automation of a system under development. so I need to use sendmail in my perl scripts to send email as a conclusion of tests that I run. I know Linux only as an account holder/user not admin. I use Linux to write and run my perl scripts. I already have sendmail.cf and *.mc under /etc/mail and I have my mail server name and IP address.
what should I do next to config sendmail and be abe to use linux command line to send a test email to my yahoo account to test it? also, what is the syntax for sendmail on command line?
thanks again.
Zapa.
