My smtp server allows authentication but doesn't require it, so in this
context I never bothered to figure out how to set it up.  If yours
requires authentication, try info for 'SMTP'. Looks like you want to set
smtpmail-auth-credentials and maybe also smtpmail-starttls-credentials.

smtpmail-auth-credentials's value is "~/.authinfo"

Specify username and password for servers, directly or via .netrc file.
This variable can either be a filename pointing to a file in netrc(5)
format, or list of four-element lists that contain, in order,
`servername' (a string), `port' (an integer), `user' (a string) and
`password' (a string, or nil to query the user when needed).  If you
need to enter a `realm' too, add it to the user string, so that it
looks like address@hidden'.
