Re: Sendmail authentication issue or spam?



Thanks but I really don't understand the mechanism to use... I think I would have to understand that....I looked at the examples on the internet and the U: was set to root...I: the username and P:password given...
Could u please explain mechanism to use?
 
AuthInfo:cobranet.org "U:user_authname" "P:password"
"M:mechanism_to_use"

thanks again

Why do you use "U:root"?

$ host -t mx mail.cobranet.org
mail.cobranet.org is an alias for cobranet.org.
cobranet.org mail is handled by 0 cobranet.org.

So I would set in access_db:

AuthInfo:cobranet.org "U:user_authname" "P:password"
"M:mechanism_to_use"

For "U" and "P" use the data you would set in your MUA to send mail
using your ISP's account.

"relay=isp.org. [11.11.11.113]"

Some kind of obfuscation? If yes, it is not helpful in this case. Is
"isp.org" = "cobranet.org"?
