    Sendmail / SMTP Auth problems


    So I'm trying to get SMTP auth installed/setup, but am running into some errors when I go through the installation. Mainly getting errors with the Cyrus SASL installation portion. I'm reading the docs provided with the package and on Sendmail's site. http://www.sendmail.org/~ca/email/auth.html
    I'm a simple guy, and this doc seems to have a few things in there that catch me off guard.

    Has anyone been successful with installing smtp auth? any problems/fixes I should be doing first??

    Help would be appreciated

    SMTP Auth with SASL

    I guess I should have specified that this is on my Slackware server, not Mandrake. Although I did just find a link to help install RPM files in slackware, and installed that - which could be useful with some other programs.
    BUT... I could not find any links for Cyrus-SASL as an RPM, so that option is out

    Any others?

    Slackware 10.1 and Sendmail 8.13

    Well it won't directly help, but I'll give it a try. That link is for Postfix and SASL, NOT Sendmail and SASL, but might give what I'm missing

    Sendmail is a difficult program to start with. Configuration is not straight forward. Postfix amongst others is a good alternative for sendmail.

    Thank You for looking into it for me. I've got a friend looking into this aswell, and is coming across similar issues. I have a hard time reading some of the docs out there - I need it fairly simple, or at least in a way that I can read


    Thanks
