I've gotten a bit further this weekend but I'm not 'there' yet. I could
sucessfully send a e-mail by using 'mail' as normal user at my server.
Allthough when I tried to send an e-mail from my laptop with my server
as smtp server it kept prompting for my password and this is what was
displayed in /var/log/maillog :
Aug 5 11:40:36 FStaals sm-mta: k759eEva000101: Riza.FStaals.LAN
[192.168.2.5] did not issue MAIL/EXPN/VRFY/ETRN during connection to IPv4
When I googled if I could find a solution I came to this page :
The solution oppered there was to add ' mech_list: login plain' to
/usr/local/lib/sasl2/Sendmail.conf . So I did and it kind of worked,
allthough now I can only send e-mail to other users at my server ( for
example root ), when I try to mail to an external adress my log 'says'
my message is rejected:

I'm not sure what I have to do to get working correctly and I was hoping
someone could give me some hints what I'm doing wrong. Also I'm not sure
if it's a good idea to add the 'mech_list: login plain' to sasl2's
Sendmail.conf ? Last but not least : I want sendmail to use SSL and
listen to port 465. sockstat shows It isn't listening to that port, but
I think it should, does anyone happen to know what it is I'm doing wrong
at that point:
root at FStaals$ sockstat -4 | grep sendmail
root sendmail 1410 3 tcp4 *:25 *:*
root sendmail 1410 5 tcp4 *:587 *:*
root at FStaals$ cat /etc/mail/FStaals.net.cf | grep smtps
O DaemonPortOptions=Port=smtps, Name=TLSMTA, M=s
