Depending on if the user supplies a password or not I set it to one of 
these values. It was on smtpAuthAutoSelect, which seems to trigger the 
"->AUTH CRAM-MD5" request. So is this a bug of TSmtpCli? Should it send 
an AUTH request, if the command is not on the list? What is the default 
in this case?
