SMTP-Proxy: Authentication

This ruleset allows these ESMTP authentication types: DIGEST- MD5, CRAM-MD5, PLAIN, LOGIN, LOGIN (old style), NTLM, and GSSAPI. The default rule denies all other authentication types. The RFC that tells about the SMTP authentication extension is RFC 2554. You can add, delete, or modify rules.
