In smtpfw.tab enter:
"*"[tab]"smtp.i-cable.com"[newline]

Create a file called smtp.i-cable.com.tab and put inside:
"plain"[tab]"login"[tab]"pass"[newline]

Put this file in $MAIL_ROOT/userauth/smtp directory.
"plain" can be also "login", "cram-md5" or "external" - it is the type of authentication.

Note [tab] is a real TAB character and [newline] is real RETURN.
"login" is your username for ISP smtp and "pass" is the password for that username.

Thanks for the tips,

I had do what you've told me on smtpfwd.tab and smtp.i-cable.com.tab

By I am still getting the error as follow:

[PeekTime] 1069419034 : Fri, 21 Nov 2003 20:50:34 +0800
<<
ErrCode = -81
ErrString = [MAIL FROM:] not permitted by remote SMTP server
ErrInfo = 550 5.7.1 Access denied
SMAIL SMTP-Send MX = "mailin2.i-cable.com." SMTP = "osward.net" From = "osward@osward.net" To = "olau@i-cable.com" Failed !
SMTP-Error = "550 5.7.1 Access denied"
SMTP-Server = "mailin2.i-cable.com."
>>

Any idea what might went wrong?

Thanks in advance for your time

Check for tabs...some txt editors convert tabs into spaces and this won't work.

I use WordPad to edit the file which I think is OK.

I had tried "plain" , "login" and "cram-md5" but still couldn't authenticate with my isp smtp server. What is the difference of different kind of authentication means. Maybe I should read about the manual again to use "external".

Any suggestion?

Thanks is advance for the time

Are you sure you will be able to send that mail using your ISP's SMTP if you authenticate? It seems a wild guess to me.

Basicly the general idea is that, if you can send it with your e-mail program directly to your ISP's SMTP, then you should be able to send it via XMailserver to that SMTP in just the same way. I've never heard of an SMTP-server checking for extra "received" headers (which are the only difference between directly sending it and having it pass through XMailserver), so there shouldn't be any difference.

- Did you test it with an e-mail program directly to your ISP's SMTP (using the same FROM-address, obviously). If that doesn't work either, I don't think ik will ever work.
If that does work without having to authenticate, you shouldn't authenticate with XMailserver either.
- Is the FROM-address a valid internet address, or an e-mail address that only works in your LAN? Lots of ISP's will check if the FROM address is valid and can receive mails. If yours is an internal address, you'll never be able to use it as a FROM address on the internet.
- Does your ISP also block outgoing on port 25? If not, have XMailserver send the mail directly to its destination and don't use your ISP's SMTP.

Or you can ask you friend to relay your mail server as he is already relaying it for incoming.
