SMTP authentication?

Hello guys,
I'm testing proxmox and my understanding so far is that it doesn't support SMTP authentication.

Is there anyway to implement it? I mean even if it is not supported officially

* PMG is usually used as a Proxy between the internet and your mail-server (where the mailboxes are and where your users authenticate themselves).
What's your use-case for SMTPAUTH? - who should authenticate to PMG (or should PMG authenticate to an upstream relay)?

In any case you can use the templating system [0] to change the postfix config for inbound or outbound SMTPAUTH [1].

I hope this helps!
