I'm trying to send email, using sendmail, with authentication port 587 and
credentials.

I modified sendmail.mc as follows:
TRUST_AUTH_MECH(`EXTERNAL DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN PLAIN')dnl
define(`confAUTH_MECHANISMS', `EXTERNAL GSSAPI DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN
PLAIN')dnl
FEATURE(`authinfo',`hash /etc/mail/auth/client-info')dnl

DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp, Name=MTA')dnl
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=587, Name=MSA, M=E')dnl
This makes sendmail listen for incoming connections on ports 25 (smtp)
and 587; it doesn't change the sending port. By default, it will always
send to port 25.
What you probably want to add are:
########################################################################
dnl Send all outbound mail through this host
define(`SMART_HOST',`[smtp.auth.orange-business.com]')
dnl Use port 587 (instead of 25) when sending mail
define(`RELAY_MAILER_ARGS', `TCP $h 587')
define(`ESMTP_MAILER_ARGS’, `TCP $h 587′)
########################################################################

I suppose that if one uses the ESMTP option, one has to install esmtp and configure it as needed.
as discribed in : http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/opensource/send-mail-with-esmtp-for-a-simple-single-user-system/232
How do you tell sendmail to use esmtp as the email deliverer?

I dropped that line and used a authinfo file as described above and it worked.
Probably is esmtp a simpler way to do it for different users and different domains?
