I am trying to authenticate the outgoing messages, within local domain and not for relaying. If I use OE and check the "Outgoing server requires authentication", i am able to send mail but if i use Evolution, I am not able to send email with SMTP "Server requires authentication" checked. I tried using the Plain/Login mechanism but it always gives error message. With LOGIN it shows, "Error while performing operation: SMTP server mail.example.com does not support requested authentication type LOGIN." Same error with Plain (Plain mentioned in this case) and other supported types do not work as well.

But in sendmail.mc, its written that OE uses LOGIN mechanism and it is working fine but not Evolution.

I have not made any chages in sendmail.mc, except for DEAMON line.

Pls hlp.

PS: Is there any website which explains sendmail.mc completely, line by line?
