Qmail - SMTP auth how to?


I have a qmail server
Is there any way if all clients HAVE TO use auth for sending email? Because I tried sending email without auth, it's still posibble

Code:
ehlo test
250-my.domain.com
250-PIPELINING
250-8BITMIME
250-SIZE 0
250 AUTH LOGIN PLAIN CRAM-MD5

I'm no Qmail expert but as you have had no replies for a month now may I suggest that you take a look at;

Donboy provides an impressive response and hopefully this will help with your issue.

Hello,

Check the run file for the qmail-smtpd that has smtp-auth enabled.

Yours may be different, but the path to mine is:

Quote:
/var/qmail/supervise/qmail-smtpd/run
Here is the end of my run file:

Quote:
exec /usr/local/bin/softlimit -m 30000000 \
/usr/local/bin/tcpserver -v -H -R -l "$LOCAL" -c "$MAXSMTPD" \
-u "$QMAILDUID" -g "$NOFILESGID" 0 587 /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd /bin/cmd5checkpw /bin/true 2>&1
You likely have a config option that looks something like this:

Quote:
-x /etc/tcprules.d/qmail-smtpd.cdb
Remove that option and your qmail-smtpd will only use the smtp-auth mechanism and no longer allow IP based relay.

-Raymond
