Relaying mail using the AUTH-SMTP in Redhat 9
Posted on 2004-04-04
I am able to pop and send mail with my outlook client in clear text.
1 Is it possible to use sasldb2 to authenticate the pop3. Not sure the settings that I need to make at the server.
2 How to solve the problem of relaying denied.
I have configured the sendmail.mc to relay mail using AUTH-SMTP. Created users into the sasldb2.
The mail server is behind a firewall.
When I try to send mail to the server for relaying from the internet I get an error
relaying is denied.
