Hi list,
some etherealing revealed the difference between the working connection kmail
-> sendmail and the not working sendmail -> sendmail connection. And the
difference was striking:

In the file /etc/mail/auth/auth-info the password has to be supplied in the
"encrypted" (Base64?) form! I did not read any hint about this and I think it
would be nice to add this remark to the HowTo in the SDB. Now the connection
works as desired...

Bye

Roland
