My ISP i need to send authinfo in order to sendmail they block port 25 outbound..

Im using sendmail 8.13.6

Can anyone tell me how to do this?

my SMTP server is outgoing.verizon.net

I did the following and maybe im doing it wrong:

created /etc/mail/authinfo

AuthInfo: outgoing.verizon.net "U:myusername" "P:mypassword" "M:PLAIN"

In /etc/mail/sendmail.cf

# default authentication information for outgoing connections
DefaultAuthInfo=/etc/mail/authinfo

makemap hash /etc/mail/authinfo.db < authinfo 

then i restarted it

But not getting it to work properly, it looks like it sends the mail but dont get it..

Any ideas?
