How do I set up a smart host with authentication in sendmail using Blue Quartz or Linux with embarq?

Solution:

  1. Using the GUI Under Server Management Select Email  –> Advnaced.  In the Smart Relay Server field enter the name of the smart relay host.
  2. Make sure the Smart Host is setup in /etc/mail/sendmail.cf

    # “Smart” relay host (may be null)
    DSsmtp.embarqmail.com

  3. Edit the /etc/mail/access

    At the bottom of the file add:

    AuthInfo:smtp.embarqmail.com “U:my_isp_user” “P:my_isp_password”
  4. Run the following:

    makemap hash /etc/mail/access < /etc/mail/access

    /etc/init.d/sendmail restart
