So no user info should be provided?

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'.

I've got the following error while I try to send a message.

You are not authorized to send mail as <MAIL FROM: <address@hidden>>, 
authentication is require

This is part of my .emacs file:

(require ' smtpmail)
(setq send-mail-function                'smtpmail-send-it)
(setq message-send-mail-function        'smtpmail-send-it)
(setq smtpmail-default-smtp-server      "")
(setq smtpmail-smtp-server "")
(setq smtpmail-debug-info t) ; only to debug problems
(setq smtpmail-auth-credentials '("" 25 "address@hidden" "*****"))

Can you tell me what I had missed?

I have been trying to get smtpmail to work with authentication, and have been having the same problem. I also posted a question over on looking for a solution.

Hopefully someone will have an answer to this.
