After breaking things yesterday with multiple operation based test cases I
finally got round to pushing one of my SMTP test cases tonight only to see
the results in one of the autobuilds:

As it turns out I was talking complete rubbish (sorry!) when I compared
ESMTP to RFC821 based SMTP which means we currently don't support passing a
username and password to curl and then ignore it if the server is an RFC821
based server :(

So should I?

a) Carry on with this fix, push my next test case and fix up RFC821 based
SMTP as well - which involves removing the !conn->bits.user_passwd from


b) Undo what I've done so far - Commit fe260b75e7 and dd07e79023 ?

Kind Regards
