You can specify a login here if you like (remember, citadel just supports plain auth) in this syntax username:password@mail.yourprovider.com. You could also want to relay through some other local running MTA [Mail Transport Agent] like Postfix (who will provide more sophisticadet client auth mechanisms for example)

Masqueradable Domains
