Go, read the RFCs. Read the source code of patch from 


See: you're not expected, nor allowed to log in "typing plain text", the
input has to be base64-encoded. That's why you get "malformed auth
input" instead of "authentication denied" (never wondered about the
error _message_???).

Your bet bet is to use a MUA capable of doing SMTP-AUTH and test using
it. Don't try to hack a telnet session if you don't know what to type in
('VXNlcm5hbWU6' should have given you a hint that something's different
than in POP3-login session; FYI: it's the string 'Username:'
