Oh mighty Linux Help Thread, I beg thee for help!
I am relatively new to setting up servers from the command line, so please bare with me! I use to use Plesk but decided it would be best to ditch it and learn properly. I have been coping fine so far, but have run into a problem.
I have a Linux VPS server running CentOS 5. I am trying to get sendmail working so that I can,
* Access it externally via SMTP and relay when authenticated
* Add usernames and passwords for said SMTP authentication
I've been reading countless tutorials online, but can't seem to do either!
So far, I can,
* Send an email via SMTP if it is from localhost (without authentication may I add).
* Connect to sendmail via SMTP externally, but can't seem to authenticate to send an email
Any idea on what I need to do to get this working? I'm not interested in TLS authentication (right now). Plain old port 25 PLAIN LOGIN will do.
Fyi, I get the following when doing a simple test...
