Right, crypt uses DES. I had that confused with MD5.
For the smtp auth, that requires MD5, we store the clear text password.

I'm not aware of anyone who's written code to use MD5 encrypted passwords.

It uses the standard unix crypt() function call.
Most systems now days use MD5 so the password should
start with a $1$
