While I can't comment on the CDash configuration aspect, the need for
credentials all depends on your SMTP server.  Typically an organization
will have thier own SMTP server internally that outgoing mail will use that
doesn't require credentials but only accepts connections from inside the
network.  Similary, it's also typical to run an SMTP daemon on the local
machine (i.e. sendmail or qmail) that doesn't require any credentials but
only accepts connections from localhost.  You usually only need credentials
if your using a publicly accessible external SMTP server (like google's,
where you login with your gmail account) but that's less common.
