other than SMTP ?
Yes ... Windows Shops that only use Exchange.  Or atleast it used to be ...
Exchange servers can be configured without SMTP access for domain users ...
I remember long ago having to hand-write an MAPI protocol to be able to send
mail ...
(had to be authenticated too ... with a nasty question/response protocol ...
NTLM I think.) 

But maybe it's reasonable to ignore those islands like we ignore pure IBM
islands ...

I just moved that into the ~/.calabash configuration file:

  <cc:sendmail host="outbound.mailhop.org" port="2525" username="jdoe"

SMTP is still the only mail protocol I've ever encountered. Are there
really places that *only* do some other protocol for *sending* mail?
