painting exterior door


Is there any consensus about whether it matters to sand the door, or just clean it with TSP? It seems so much easier to just clean it with TSP and paint, rather than sand it.

And can anyone recommend a specific paint that can stand up to the several hours of direct sunlight on the outside, yet can also be used on the inside. I noticed that Behr makes an interior/exterior paint, but I don't know if it's any good.
