Question Sendmail & smtp auth

Hi there - I am having quite some probs to get sendmail working properly.
I am using sendmail and, because i am receiving reject from AOL and t-online mailaccounts (because of DHCP) if want to send all my mail through my smtp-server, where I have my mailaccount.
But I somehow cannot get sendmail to authenticate properly:
I keep receiving the following message:
## quote ##
The original message was received at Thu, 19 Jun 2003 18:03:10 +0200
from localhost.localdomain []

----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
(reason: 530 Authentication required)

----- Transcript of session follows -----
... while talking to
>>> MAIL From:<> SIZE=687
<<< 530 Authentication required
554 5.0.0 Service unavailable
## unquote ##
I'm not quite sure now, which way I should authenticate:
Should I use /etc/mail/default-auth-info with the double user name, password and smtp-server entered,
or should I rather be using the access.db and the entry in which shows to the smarthost?

I would greatly appreciate your help....
