dma does not read the server greeting to determine whether
STARTTLS or AUTH are available (minor problem as this probably is
just a configuration problem because only one "smarthost" is

Spotted in :



Just to add that regarding the detection of AUTH mechanisms, when CRAM-MD5 is not available on the server, dma is currently printing a quite scary (from a user point of view) in the logs

smarthost authentication: AUTH cram-md5 not available: 535 5.7.8 Error: authentication failed: no mechanism available


Should this just being ignored "AUTH cram-md5 not available" or can i config dma to not output this?
