Log In

Step 1

Login to your server via SSH as ‘root’ user and change to your Sendmail configuration directory, which is normally at /etc/mail. Please make backup of each configuration file before making changes.

cd /etc/mail

Step 2

Edit Sendmail configuration file ‘/etc/mail/sendmail.mc’ using your favorite editor such as ‘vi’ and add below code after #dnl define(‘SMART_HOST’, ‘smtp.your.provider’)dal line.

define('SMART_HOST', 'mail.smtp2go.com')dnl
define('RELAY_MAILER_ARGS', 'TCP $h 2525')dnl // 8025, 587 and 25 can also be used.

Step 3

To add authorization credentials, edit the file ‘/etc/mail/authinfo’ using your editor and add below line.

Replace ‘your_smtp2go_username’ and ‘your_smtp2go_password’ with your actual SMTP2GO Username and Password.

If your server supports CRAM-MD5 or DIGEST-MD5, then you may replace “M:PLAIN” with “M:CRAM-MD5 DIGEST-MD5”.

AuthInfo:mail.smtp2go.com "U:your_smtp2go_username" "P:your_smtp2go_password"

Step 4

Now update your configuration files as below:

cd /etc/mail
m4 sendmail.mc > sendmail.cf
makemap hash authinfo < authinfo

Step 5

Finally restart Sendmail service using one of the following commands based on the version you are using:

/etc/init.d/sendmail restart
service sendmail restart
