   Hi there.  I have a 2.0_RC4 machine that I'm trying to get SMTP
AUTH working on.

   I've built the pkgsrc sendmail 8.12.11 and replaced the system
sendmail with it.  It seems to work alright, and "AUTH ..." is
listed in response to EHLO.

   However, when prompted for a password, I give it only to be
prompted again by my client.  The /var/log/authlog on the server

was searching for [all]

   I'm not sure why it's trying to use auxprop, nor do I know
how to have it find it, if that is what I want to do.

   I've installed saslauthd, and it's running (-a getpwent).  But,
I don't think it's being used.  I've created a 
which contains only the line:

pwcheck_method: saslauthd

   Does anyone see anything obvious I've done wrong?  Thanks...
