By default, all mail transfer agents like sendmail, disable "promiscuous relay". Otherwise, many external relays facing the net would get black listed. Of course, if you are in some corporate domain, they permit you without password, because the relay server has some setting that allows "all smtp connectoins from these set of servers" a la local-host-names. To permit mobile users to route their email thru their relay servers, they allow smtp auth sessions, which require some authentication.
