        Already done.  Sendmail supports it.  Where've you been?
Well, to be fair, sendmail has only supported it in a public release for 2-3 weeks. :)

Sure, it's been in the beta code for a while (and 8.10 is still in beta), but sendmail supporting it is a new (albeit welcome) change.

There are other MTA's that Dean could long ago installed that implemented SMTP-AUTH before sendmail got around to it, though, so his argument is still pretty moot.
