If you have specific problems with setting up Sendmail for SMTP AUTH 
using Cyrus SASL 2.x, then posting to the or then will likely get you the help that you you're 
looking for.  Sendmail and Cyrus SASL 2.x have been known to be working 
for well over a year by now, so the problems you're experiencing are 
probably due to misconfiguration.  I am not a sendmail user, so I will 
not be able to provide you with definitive help in this case.  However, 
a quick Google search for "sendmail SMTP AUTH" came back with several 
how-to's and guides for such a setup.
