I know I'm stating the obvious here but I think it's safe to safe that
everyone's efforts are fully appreciated and I do value your help and
assistance on this patch.

I think we are about there with the NTLM changes... The only thing I would
like to clarify is the call to the Curl_base64_encode() that we talked
about. We have currently implemented Option 2 out of the two options...
Should we change this to Option 1 (being called as part of
Curl_ntlm_create_typeX_message() functions) now or after I add NTLM support
to SMTP?

I should hopefully have this ready this evening, if not tomorrow at the

Kind Regards
