Re: SMTP Auth - CRAM-MD5 AUTH types



Hi Jeremy,

It does not work in Light mode, but it does work in sponsored mode.
A modified checkpassword (= to query a clear text password) should work with 
CRAM-MD5 but i personally don't like the idea of storing passwords in clear
text. 

Regards,
Michael. 

It works with Eudora 5.2.1 in sponsored mode.
