Smarthost requires more security
Creating smarthosts with Exim is easy, but you may want to enable SMTP authentication during transactions for additional security. Just go through the following steps:
1.) Open up your /usr/local/atmail/mailserver/configure file, and find:
dnslookup: driver = dnslookup domains = ! +local_domains transport = remote_smtp ignore_target_hosts = 0.0.0.0 : 127.0.0.0/8 no_more
2.) Comment out this line so it looks like:
#dnslookup: # driver = dnslookup # domains = ! +local_domains # transport = remote_smtp # ignore_target_hosts = 0.0.0.0 : 127.0.0.0/8 # no_more
3.) Add this line below:
divertnonlocal: driver = manualroute domains = ! +local_domains transport = remote_smtp route_list = * 192.168.0.6 ignore_target_hosts = 0.0.0.0 : 127.0.0.0/8 no_more
4.) Replace "192.168.0.6" with your SMTP relay host (your smarthost destination).
5.) Find this line afterwards:
remote_smtp: driver = smtp
6.) Change it to:
remote_smtp: driver = smtp hosts_require_auth = 192.168.0.6 hosts_try_auth = 192.168.0.6
7.) Change "192.168.0.6" to your smarthost server.
8.) At the bottom of the file, find this line:
9.) Below this, add:
login: driver = plaintext public_name = LOGIN client_send = ": firstname.lastname@example.org : password"
10.) Replace "email@example.com" with SMTP Auth username. "password" with your SMTP Auth password.
11.) Restart AtMail.
