Ok. I don't mind using sasl if it can use the information in /etc/passwd
and /etc/shadow (or go through pam for the same result). I just don't
want to wind up with the hassle of keeping the sasl database

But how and where do I configure this in debian's installation of
sendmail/sasl? and what do I need to run to update/reload it
once I've made changes?

I've made changes to /etc/mail/sasl/Sendmail.conf.2 but they
don't seem to do anything. Maybe I'm not reloading something
or this isn't the place to make such changes?

Any ideas?
