FAQ
I had Mailman working fine with Sendmail up until I enabled SMTP-AUTH in
Sendmail. The messages get to Mailman but are not delivered to the list
members anymore because Mailman does not authenticate. Disabling
SMTP-AUTH is not an option as we are an ISP and have users that require
email on the road and such, and we do not wish to be blacklisted as an
open relay.

There aren't any messages in the archive that deal with this
specifically, so my question is what EXACTLY do I have to do to get it
to work with SMTP-AUTH. I have included my sendmail.mc file for
review. I am running Fedora Core 1 with the latest stable versions of
Sendmail and Mailman. Mailman is set to deliver to SMTPdirect if that
is any help.
