Can't get sendmail to advertise auth methods
Help! I have been running sendmail on my home machine for some years and it has always worked. Recently, I decided to use my home box to relay mail from my phones when I'm on the road. When I use the standard Android mail app, I can use my home as an ougoing server just fine. When I try to use K-9 I can't -- K-9 complains that I'm not advertising an AUTH method it can use. I checked, and sure enough, I'm only advertising GSSAPI.
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 myurl ESMTP Sendmail 8.14.5/8.14.5; Mon, 9 Jul 2012 10:21:16 -0400
I have set my sendmail.mc to advertise everything I can think of:
dnl Next two lines are for SMTP Authentication
TRUST_AUTH_MECH(`EXTERNAL DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN PLAIN')dnl
define(`confAUTH_MECHANISMS', `EXTERNAL GSSAPI DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN PLAIN')dnl
dnl Next line stops sendmail from allowing auth without encryption
define(`confAUTH_OPTIONS', `A p y')dnl
Yes, I've done the m4 thing and have restarted sendmail.
Maillog complains that it can't write to sm-client.pid, but that doesn't seem to stop things.
Any ideas why I might not be advertising CRAM-MD5, LOGIN, or PLAIN?
I've included my original post, which contains the entire sendmail.mc, but can't be posted because it contains urls (that I can't seem to find...)
