    First of all, I'm sorry that I'm asking so many questions on this article but now I've started the project, I'm determined to successfully complete it.

    Section 11 - Page 5 - To see if SMTP-AUTH and TLS work properly now run the following command:

    [[email protected] ~]# telnet localhost 25
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220 ESMTP Exim 4.66 Sat, 14 Jul 2007 18:29:05 +0100
    ehlo something Hello localhost []
    250-SIZE 52428800
    250 HELP

    As you can see, my result is slightly different although I don't think it is a problem as it may be because instead of postfix and dovecot, I am using exim and dovecot and will also be adding Teapop once I sorted this out.

    Finally, on to my actual question - The thing that concerns me is that I don't get the:

    Is this essential or optional? Could this cause potentail problems if it is not there?

    Well some email clients support only LOGIN and/or PLAIN (e.g. Outlook Express), so if you don't provide these methods, some people might not be able to log in.
