Mail woes

exim.pngI’m trying to sort out a mailserver so that it will accept authenticated connections – so that we can send email from wherever we happen to be, without having to rely on local infrastructure.

Documentation for authenticated SMTP seems to be really sparse for Exim. This document is interesting but seems more focused on configuring the mailserver to talk authenticated to other servers. Not quite what I’m after. Even Google has failed me so far. Strangely, all mailing list references seem to be dated around 2001. Did all Debianites stop using Exim after that?

Update: This post on the debian-user mailing list gave a solution that seems to work. Secure Mail Relaying with Exim and OpenSSL was also pretty good.
