Outgoing Email, SMTP setup and CRAM-MD5

Hello Vanillaforums,
I've been playing around with your forum software and find it a simple, yet great solution!
Now I'm a bit stuck when it comes to setting up SMTP, because it doesn't seem to support any type of encrypted password.

My mailserver only supports encrypted passwords, so it doesn't seem like they're compatible. Is there some hidden feature that can help me, or does vanillaforums not currently support it?

    with SSL/TLS there is no need for encrypted passwords as it is not sent over plain text.

    grep is your friend.

    That didn't really answer my question. Need or no need. My entire mail server is using encrypted passwords.

    I had a look at their version of of phpmailer and I don't think it is supported. So it would need a pull request.

    fputs($this->smtp_conn,"AUTH LOGIN" . $this->CRLF); is pretty clear this is the only authentication supported.

    newer versions phpmailer do support it.
