Re: Fedora sendmail auth

I have some crappy laptop running windoze and I want to connect to my home server to send and receive my mail. I got the dovecot/imap side working but I need to know what to do to be allowed to use my server at home which runs sendmail as my SMTP server. Is there a gentle howto that's uptodate WRT F~10? Can I just auth by password or do I really need to go the whole certificate magilla? What packages are needed?

All you need is sendmail and dovecot. Only allow connections in your firewall to the SSL ports, that's firewall configuration rather than mail, just open the imaps (993) and smtps (465 aka TLS) for outside connect. That will let you connect remotely fairly safely (with good passwords).
