	Right now, no.

	The specifications mandate rather complex mechanisms for this,
	but I have no idea what the real world clients ( = M$ ) do ?
	To support M$ way of login might simply be adding:
	to the EHLO response lines, then do something like this:
		auth login
		334 VXNlcm5hbWU6
		user foo.bar
		334 UGFzc3dvcmQ6
		pass bar.foo
		535 Authentication failed
	but propably I didn't use it correctly...
