Oh. Yeah. I've had requests to support NTLM. I'd do it if I could
figure out how, but I've no particular interest in figuring out how.

I wonder how common it is for servers to provide no SMTP access. I've
installed lots and lots of software that needs to know what SMTP
server to use to send email, but I don't think I've ever installed a
piece of software that offered any other option for sending mail.
