More recent Microsoft clients may support the PLAIN mechansim as well,
but since people may be running older software I'd say it's a
requirement to provide both PLAIN and LOGIN.
While the OP is fixing LOGIN, I suggest he fixes support for CRAM-MD5
and DIGEST-MD5 as well so that clients won't be forced to send passwords
in the clear.
