Quote from: eagle on September 25, 2019, 01:08:52 pmIf memory serves, Sendmail does not support that. You will need to set up a relay mail server that has that functionality. The way I did it was to set up a mail server on my home network using Postfix, then to have that relay for my NeXT. The Postfix mail server only accepted mail from the NeXT, and the only thing it did with email (and it did this with all email) was to relay it through my ISP's mail server. Postfix supports the needed credentialed SMTP functionality, and I configured Postfix to send with credentials. Any Linux machine can run Postfix, and can be configured to do this.

If it does, you want to do something like this on the NeXT side: https://rick.cogley.info/post/setup-smarthost-in-linux-sendmail/The trick is the linedefine(`SMART_HOST', `smtp-relay.gmail.com')dnlIf m4 doesn't exist, I think you want to search sendmail.cf for the "DM" line and set it to "DMsmartrelay.homenetwork.com" supplying the correct hostname. You might need to add the hostname to NetInfo as well.You'll want to point that to the relay on your home network. Using an ISP (or gmail or iCloud) relay with postfix is easy, and web searches find it easily.
