OT - Sendmail Auth

I need to set up SMTP Auth on a server to allow a roaming user to send mail 
using one of our  servers. The user will have a dynamic IP. The server is 
not in the MX lists for our domains.

I have the sendmail Cookbook, and an older version of the Bat book, but 
every thing I do seems pointless and doesn't work, as far as I can tell. The 
cookbook seems to make it sound real simple, and I do get sendmail to 
acknowedge and advertise DIGEST-MD5 and CRAM-MD5. After that, AuthInfo to 
the access db, and every thing after seems to avoid the Sasl. I have also 
started the saslauthd daemon. I have also created the user with the 
saslpasswd command.

Does anyone have a good URL for setting up a Centos 3 server running 
Sendmail 8.13 and the MUA being used by this user, which I think is either 
Outlook Express or Thunderbird?

Thanks for any pointers to a good site.
