Hi community


I have an authenticated sendmail. I want to modifiy it in order to:
*All mail sent to mydomain.com is not authenticated
*All mail sent to any domain different as  mydomain.com be authenticated
(TLS included).

Is that what you really need, or is this a way to accomplish some other

SMTP AUTH/TLS is to the server, and the server cares not if it is the
destination, or simply a hop along the way.

For testing and boredom relief, I setup
	* My laptop uses TLS/AUTH betwixt the MSP and MTA on localhost
	  which then uses TLS/AUTH to connect my home server and
	  TLS to talk to other MTAs
	* My home server accepts, but does not require TLS/AUTH for
	  local lan connections, but requires TLS/AUTH for port 587
	  and uses TLS/AUTH to talk to my ISP, but only TLS when
	  talking to other MTAs.
Add dk/dkim to the mix, and it easy to have most of your mails wind up
with more headers than body :)

How can I do that?  (I don't refer to complete procedure, but how can I do
to "separate" mail by destination) I was looking at access and mailtertable
but it seems that those don't help me.

You can control what the MTA requires and/or allows for each connection
it answers, or it originates (based on DNS fqdn, IP, CN, etc.)

You can do all of this with the access and/or authinfo databases
just make sure you have FEATURE(`authinfo')dnl in sendmail.mc

install, if you've not already, sendmail-doc and peruse
/usr/share/doc/sendmail/cf.README.gz, especially the section

http://www.sendmail.org/~ca/email/auth.html has a decent walk-through
on setting this up and debugging it.

Thanks in advance!

Good luck, and fee free to ping me if you need more help

       find it alive and it charges, and then you kill it
