      Oh yes, it is. We have MS Outlook Express and Outlook clients and they
      connect without problems. Do two things:

      1: telnet mail.barlaeus.nl 25
      ehlo mydomain.net

      See what it says.

      2: openssl s_client -starttls smtp -connect mail.barlaeus.nl:25

      See what it says.

      You need the "AUTH=LOGIN" for the MS client to recognize it. You
      therefore need broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes in main.cf.

      > Btw., with IMAP, Outlook sends "AUTH PLAIN" without any problem...

      What the bleeding heck does that have to do with the price of fish?
