    Smarthosts do not usually have user/password authentication.  Instead
    they are typically either MX based or explicitly allow 'relay'
    connections for particular domains or IP ranges.
all of the smarthosts I use are authenticated.  that's because users are 
behind dialup and thus don't have a fixed IP address.

i think we shouldn't get carried away.  if it doesn't work with dma, you 
can still install a traditional MTA.
