Thanks pop3s got me further.
Additional questions:
* The client hangs at the end ( after checking messages) for some reason. It does not close connection.
* it prints the password uncerypted to the console. The smtp client prints encrypted password
* libcurl smtp seems to work fine using this argument 'smtp://' for example. Is there smtps:// version of this paschal
