Yes, smtp.

You'll have to track that down first.  A server can only
come from mts.conf, your profile, or the send command line
at the whatnow prompt.

You'll need to rebuild with SASL and TLS support.  Rather
than me look up how to do that :-), try rebuilding with
this, when in your nmh workspace:  docs/contrib/build_nmh -dv
and respond to the prompts.

I was starting to type another message:

This looks so familiar that I thought I'd try it.
And I expect it will look familiar to Ken now, too.

The send component in your profile will then need

  send: -server smtps-proxy.messagingengine.com -port 80 -sasl -initialtls

If you also add a credentials component:

  credentials: file:.nmhcreds

Then add that .nmhcreds file to your Mail (MH Path) directory
with contents:

machine smtps-proxy.messagingengine.com
  login <FastMail username>
  password ********

It should work.  Again, send -snoop.
