I used a different authentication method, cy2-crammd5.
That doesn't appear to link against libpthread, at least ldd doesn't
show that. A difference is that it doesn't authenticate against the
login password, but it has its own password database.
Since I like the idea of not exposing my login password when I want to
send mails (even if it is secured by md5 + SSL - this is an extra door
where my password could potentially be tested in a brute force
attack or something) this was fine for me.

(It would be nice if my imap server, currently dovecot, could use such a
database too, for the same reason)

TLS seems to work fine for me, but I use the pkgsrc libcrypto. Not sure
if I did anything special for that, I can't find anything right now

This is on a 5.1 system, by the way.
