sendmail not authenticating with smart host

Due to port 25 restrictions, I am trying to get my brother's email
server to authenticate out on port 587. I have sendmail talking via
port 587, but it is not properly authenticating. To help narrow
things down, I am having his machine route all mail to my machine with
authentication. His machine is a running version 7: 7.0-RELEASE
FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE #0: Sun Feb 24 19:59:52 UTC 2008
Here are some relevant parts of the hostname.mc file:
define(`confAUTH_MECHANISMS', `LOGIN PLAIN')dnl
auth/client-info has this:
AuthInfo:myserver.com "U:hisuser" "I:hisuser" "P:password" "M:PLAIN"
And I have created client-info.db hash. I have copied the config file
workflow from my server which uses smtp auth to talk to my ISP on port
On myserver.com, I do see that his machine connects to me, but I see
this error in maillog:
Relaying denied. Proper authentication required.
When I was trying to go through his ISP, I got this error message in
his error log: stat=Service unavailable. We share ISP (from
different states though) and I am still able to send via my ISP. I
even tried to directly copying my auth info for the ISP from my box to
his (so he would be sending as me) and I got this same error.
Have I missed a configuration setting somewhere?
