sendmail as smarthost / authentication

Dear all,

I did try to follow instructions at
to make sendmail use a smarthost.

I only followed what is under section:
"Using sendmail as a client with AUTH"

Anyway, to cut long story short, sendmail does not operate as a client 
so my smarthost is rejecting its connections (of which I have log 
entries to prove).

Any word of advice will be deeply appreciated. Do I need to install all 
the sasl-* stuff to make it work? I just want to forward root emails 
from a sendmail box to my main account. However, normal (non-smarthost) 
delievery is not possible as this box is on a dynamic address and thus 
rejected by the smarthost.

Many thanks!
