Well, I hadn't thought of that but it is quite possibly correct.
Although, I just tried out Evolution with method set to CRAM-MD5 and was
able to auth with the SMTP-auth patch and vpopmail. But I don't know if
Evolution will fall back on plain or login if it fails MD5.... I
wouldn't have thought so but you never know.

Anyone else been able to use CRAM-MD5 with vpopmail?
