It optionally supports SASL:

        * Applied Ken Hornstein <address@hidden>'s patches
        implementing SASL support for POP3 and SMTP.  If nmh is compiled
        with SASL support, using the -sasl switch on the inc, msgchk,
        post, and send commands will enable authentication encryption for
        SMTP, and both authentication and data stream encryption for POP3.

To use:

1) Add to configure something like:


2) Enable in your .mh_profile:

  send: -sasl -user <user>

3) Add ~/.netrc file with:

  default login <user> password <password>

It is.  As Ken noted earlier in this thread:

  send: -port submission

(The -port option to send and post doesn't appear in their man pages.)
