Yes.  I created a test program, and Net::SMTP was fine as long as I used
Port, but failed when I included the port in the hostname string.
Arguably this is a bug in Net::SMTP.

You need to have access to a mail server that will only relay when
authenticated, and only accepts GSSAPI.  My personal server accepts
GSSAPI always and PLAIN only when TLS is enabled, so I just turned off
TLS temporarily to test.

As for Kerberos, yes, you'd need to have it set up to reproduce this.

You need to explicitly specify an SSL_verify_mode argument to start_SSL.
