However, the most popular qmail-smtpd-auth patch has CRAM-MD5 as one of 
the auth methods and as far as I know vpopmail [at least in standard 
installation, where all passwords are stored as encrypted] will not work 
with this mode of authorization. Supposively one has to disable the CRAM-
MD5 announcement in the patch source. If one doesn't do that, clients 
that do have CRAM-MD5 as one of the AUTH methods [supposively for example 
Pegasus], will try that by default and it will fail.

Am I correct in the above assumption or has something changed?
