Configuring ELM for godaddy SMTP server

I have a Slackware 10.2 server that I want to have send email using ELM from a shell script( using the form:

echo "some text string" | elm -s "SERVER TROUBLE" > /dev/null 2>&1

This will be used to alert via email of problems detected by the script. The server is on a broadband connection and I would like to use my godaddy smtp server to send the mail. The godaddy server is and I need to log in using a user and password ( passwordassword).

How can I configure my system to do this? Is the configuration required in sendmail (I have sendmail running), or is the configuration required in ELM.

Thanks in advance for your help!
