SMTP auth in RT

Hello everybody,

Could anyone please show me how to implement SMTP auth technically in RT so
that I can send mails to different domain users? I tried following the wiki
but could not get clear cut idea where to make the changes. I’ve added some
of the SMTP directives in RT configuration but nowhere found the option to
enter user name & password for SMTP authentication.

I am using Centos 5.3, RT 3.8.4, sendmail 8.13.8, mysql 5.0.45

Thanks

One solution is to take advantage of the client SMTP AUTH support
of your MTA. For sendmail see:

 I second that. Now, that does not mean you need to install a

full-blown MTA in your RT box (our security guidelines orders us not
to). We run msmtp (it has a bit more features than ssmtp) in ours and
all it does is send the emails out to our mail server proper.
