Question regarding sendmail AUTH / Relaying denied
I´m using ISPConfig 2.2.10 with Centos 4.4 and sendmail 8.13.1. I´ve been trying to configure SMTP auth so any user that would like to use the server for sending mails anywhere should authenticate first with its POP3 login.
I´ve followed the tutorials, and the suggestions from the forum, but I´m stuck where the user can only send mail to local accounts and when trying to send to another domain (i.e. gmail, hotmail) it gets the following error:
reject=550 5.7.1 <firstname.lastname@example.org>... Relaying denied, IP name lookup failed [192.168.1.50]
Of course if I add
to /etc/mail/access, i get no message and then the user can send. But my question is, isn't the SMTP auth option precisely a way to avoid entering each IP address to the /etc/mail/access file so any user can send mails as long as the user authenticates? Or is it that even if I define SMTP auth I should include in /etc/mail/access all the IPs from the users that are going to use the server?
By the way, when I do:
testsaslauthd -u web1_user -p password
I get "OK Success" so it seems the SASL config is working. And also, if I do
telnet localhost 25
I can see 250 AUTH LOGIN PLAIN, so it seems the config is also in place.
Thank you and regards,
