Permit personal workstation to relay mail with sendmail

I am self-hosting my domain email on Linux using sendmail. I want my laptop to be able to use this email server as the smtp/pop server, including being able to cc: to other recipients.

I've set up the Outlook outgoing server to require authentication and I've put my Linux ID and password in the "Log on using" section. This permits mail send from my laptop to be delivered to my Linux account, but anyone I cc on some other domain gets reject with "relaying denied".

How do I fix this?

modify /etc/mail/access and add your internal subnet:

  Connect:192.168.1                  RELAY

when done:

  makemap hash access < access

Hmmm, is there nothing else to filter on? The Outlook client is a laptop which can travel and may get different IPs.

then you need to configure SMTP AUTH by creating a self-signed certificate, installing sasld and modifying the to reflect the changes.

Well, I guess I need some help setting this up. I've created a certificate using, which I've used successfully before. And I've configured sendmail as I've done before. According to, I'm OK.
However, My Android mail program says
Username or password incorrect.
(535 5.7.0 authentication failed)

Open in new window

I've run `saslauthd -a shadow` and the user is in the /etc/shadow file. I've re-enter the userid and password multiple times. I'm *sure* it is correct.

Any idea how to fix this?
