We've got a webserver running RH, among its duties is a cron job that runs a script that sends a bi weekly email to a distribution group.  It works fine, however we'd like to secure the dist group so only that specific account can send to it.  The script uses SendMail currently, how can I make the script use a particular account, authenticate to Exchange and send the message while keeping access to this dist list secured?

Hi!

You could set up the DL to accept mail from authenticated senders only.

Config Exchange: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/827616

Config RH: http://dbaron.org/linux/sendmail
