The -snoop flag to send will show the complete network transaction, and
includes decoding the base64 encoding.  In this particular case, though,
I believe it won't be so useful because it will include a bearer token
rather than a password.

I believe for you, -user should be address@hidden.  The full account
name is used in the mhlogin command, and I believe that's what I used when
I tested it.


Hi Ken,

Many thanks. Adding the domain did the trick! :-)

Now over to dist and see how google treats it. Anyone know already?
