I followed the steps in http://www.linuxha.com/other/sendmail/gmail.html to setup gmail in send mail. But when I try to send mail I got the authentication failure message.

—– Transcript of session follows —– … while talking to smtp.gmail.com:

AUTH dialogue <<< 535-5.7.1 Username and Password not accepted. Learn more at <<>> MAIL From: SIZE=538 AUTH= <<< 530-5.5.1 Authentication Required. Learn more at <<< 530 5.5.1 http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=14257 i7sm28108408qap.12 554 5.0.0 Service unavailable

  • That code above doesn't seem to have any authentication information, that is what the Gmail server is complaining about. – Tim Dec 29 '11 at 14:48
  • @Tim /etc/mail/authinfo file have the gmail login information.. – Arul Dec 29 '11 at 15:47

Do you have the correct (gmail) username and password settings in client-info? If yes, is sendmail able to read this file? Have you built your new sendmail.cf after editing sendmail.mc? Have you restarted sendmail afterwards?

  • Yes I have correct username and password in /etc/mail/authinfo. I can login with this info in browser. I build successfully sendmail.cf using "make all install restart" After done everything sendmail is successfully restarted. – Arul Dec 29 '11 at 15:48
  • Permissions like I said. Is sendmail able to read the external files? Look for warnings in the log files. – adamo Dec 30 '11 at 7:32
  • Yes It can read external file.. sendmail 14165 root 3u IPv4 517170 TCP *:smtp (LISTEN) Its started by root user.. -rw------- 1 root root 180 Dec 29 06:40 authinfo That authentication file have read and write access for root user – Arul Jan 2 '12 at 9:05
