I am sure you know better than me, I was jumping to conclusions.  I thought
SASL allowed different mechanisms and assumed that one of them was supported
by Netscape and Microsoft clients, what does MS Outlook Express mean by "Log
on using secure password authentication"?  It is separate from SSL where
Outlook Express crashes anyway.

Will do.
