  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/
    # “Smart” relay host (may be null)
  3. Edit the /etc/mail/access
    At the bottom of the file add: “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
