"Secure Password Authentication" is not what you think it is. It is a special type of function supported on Windows NT mail systems, and *specifically* has to be enabled on that system (i.e., a type of challenge/response mechanism).

It is *NOT* the same thing as say. the difference between http:// and https:// when browsing a webpage.

To get it to work, you'll need to disable that.
