Ok, I'm trying to switch from pop-before-smtp over to SMTP auth with RedHat Fedora linux running sendmail. The testsaslauthd returns success when i type in a userid/password I'm running saslauthd like this:
/usr/sbin/saslauthd -m /var/run/saslauthd -a shadow
Currently my senmail.mc file (as far as the smtp auth goes) looks like this:
(i've tried all 3 sets they all return the same problem). My Sendmail.conf file looks like:
And sendmail doesnt allow me to authenticate either by telnetting to port 25 or by using a clinet like Outlook or mozilla or whatever and setting it to login to the server for outgoing mail. I've set the sendmail loglevel=14 and attempted to authenticate to port 25 and it’s giving me this message:
