That is currently not supported directly by the client.  There is a bug to
add support for SMTP authentication however:

Until then, you can consider sending the log mails to a local sendmail
instance and configure sendmail to relay everything to a smarthost with
authentication using the needed credentials:

[ NOTE: i'm sending this again as it seems that it didn't go the first time 
around... maybe i used the wrong account to send from but i think that's
been 
fixed now ;) ]


how does one set the options to be able to email the logs via a smtp server
that 
_requires_ authentication?

my provider is a spin-off from my original provider and they are forcing us
to 
change everything to the new server(s) by May 2009... coupled with this is
that 
i'm also changing my clients to use the new email address as my dnet id so
that 
i can forward all my previous work to the new id... i need to get this email

thing working before i can comfortably continue...

advTHANKSance
