Why do you need a password?  Are you using a SMART_HOST configuration,
routing your outgoing mail through your provider's SMTP server?

If so, in sendmail.mc

define(`SMART_HOST', `the.provider.server.name')dnl
define(`RELAY_MAILER_ARGS', `TCP $h 587')dnl
define(`ESMTP_MAILER_ARGS', `TCP $h 587')
FEATURE(`authinfo',`hash /etc/mail/authinfo')dnl

in the file /etc/mail/accessinfo

AuthInfo:the.provider.server.name:587 "U:your.user.name"
"P:your.password" M:CRAM-MD5
