Sendmail with smarthost and auth enabled failing

Postby tomeus » 2011/06/07 06:05:58

Hi guys, I have a fresh install of CentOS 5.6 with sendmail 8.13.8

I am on Comcast, which means I need to send all my email via their smtp.comcast.net server with authentication

When I configured the sendmail per the available instructions, it seems to work but no mail is send:

p574TTl2004450: to=email@mydomian.com, ctladdr=asterisk@pbx.local (101/102), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=30441, relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (p574TTVb004451 Message accepted for delivery)
Jun 6 21:29:30 pbx sendmail[4453]: STARTTLS=client, relay=smtp.comcast.net, version=TLSv1/SSLv3, verify=FAIL, cipher=DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA, bits=256/256
Jun 6 21:29:30 pbx sendmail[4453]: p574TTVb004451: AUTH=client, available mechanisms do not fulfill requirements
Jun 6 21:29:30 pbx sendmail[4453]: AUTH=client, relay=smtp.comcast.net, temporary failure, connection abort

Any ideas what else I need to do to fix this and be able to send email?

Thx

T.

Welcome to the CentOS fora. Reading FAQ & Readme First is recommended for new users.

That is very little to go on. We don't know what "available instructions" you followed, nor how you configured things as a result, but it appears you are not authenticating correctly with the server. To get a good answer you must ask a smart question.

Hello-

I am running into the same problem. I have CentOS 5.6 running sendmail 8.13.8. I am trying to configure sendmail to send outbound mail to my comcast account. I have followed step outlined in the following url for the steps for 'Configuring outgoing mail'. When attempting to send mail I am seeing the following error in my /var/log/maillog

Jul 9 00:18:36 rugby sendmail[16939]: p697IZHN016937: SYSERR(root): hash map "authinfo": missing map file /etc/mail/auth/access.db: No such file or directory

Jul 9 00:18:36 rugby sendmail[16939]: p697IZHN016937: p697IaHN016939: DSN: Service unavailable

Not sure why it cant find the access.db. I have made edits to the 'access' file and then running 'make' to create new db files, as per instructions. My 'access' file has the following entries

AuthInfo:smtp.g.comcast.net "U:myemail@comcast.net" "I:myemail@comcast.net" "P:PaSsWoRd"
AuthInfo:smtp.g.comcast.net:587 "U:myemail@comcast.net" "I:myemail@comcast.net" "P:PaSsWoRd"

Not sure why this is failing.
