It's a pity that the paid folks at Sendmail.com won't support open source and
questions like this. For money. Saving 2 days to get an answer would be worth
something to a lot of people. But they only support the commercial version of
the MTA ($$$$$) and only on a couple platforms. Alas.

There's far more on Comp.mail.sendmail.
My experience is that the smtpauth stuff works fine when it works, but it's
a bitch to debug. My habit in debuging is to break a long chain of dependancies
into smaller parts to test each bit.
To my knowledge, there's no straighforwads command line way to, say, remove
Sendmail from the equation and speak to SASL itself just as sendmail would - to
see if your sasl config is working right. And that's where SMTP AUTH problems
become a FAQ.
Take it to the news group. Others can help you and claus can also do his day job.
