Somehow, I missed that nmh could authenticate that way. All I am
trying to do is send out-bound mail to my ISP's smtp server
since I can use it at no extra charge. I did successfully
configure fetchmail to retrieve in-bound messages and send them
to procmail so that part is done and works.

        I'll try changing mts.conf as you suggested and, failing
that, I will scrap msmtp and give nmh's TLS engine a try. I
don't really care as long as I get something working in this

        Thanks for the information.
