Let me restore the focus of the thread a bit.
I want to use smtp daemon that will manage a queue of outgoing mails and
use a relay host to send mails.
Many of them fit the bill. No problem so far.
The relay host requires authentication. I'd like to store the
authentication details on client side - as non root user. Many client
programs do that who invoke sendmail. But that doesn't give you queue
The daemon may need authnetication details not only at the time of
submitting a mail to queue but also when it for example has to retry
sending mails. This takes away the flexibility of specifying relay host
and auth details entirely on client side.
I don't think it's a totally unmeetable requirement technically, though I
do not know of a daemon that provides this flexibility or how to configure
one with such flexibility.
