Default smtp authentication (postfix and courier imap)


Here's my scenario:-
I have roaming users and I don't want to be an open relay, but I cannot predict where these users are. I need a way for them to say to the SMTP server "hey I belong here, let me send email".

At the moment, I'm just adding their current IP to /etc/postfix/main.cf (mynetworks) to allow to them send their email. I did a search on google and found that a simple solution will be to use smtp authentication. So I thought I ask you guys

I've setup my debian server according to The Perfect Setup - Debian Sarge . Is smtp authentication enabled already?

Many thanks!

Yes. STMP auth is present by default.

You can use SSL or not - as your wish.

Best regards,
