[SNIP] OK, I've found that it was a client software error where CRAM-MD5 login is advertised first. Pegasus mail wouldn't keep trying to get to plain LOGIN, but The BAT! would "fail back" from CRAM-MD5 to plain LOGIN and roaming SMTP relay works fine. Sorry for the initial concern, but I'd like to remove CRAM-MD5 from the advertised capabilities to avoid this kind of confusion with users. Any help there?! Sorry, but thanks so far!
