It yielded:

inc: no mail to incorporate

That makes no sense, but it's a problem that I will have to deal with.

As a test, I replaced "address@hidden" with
"address@hidden". That yielded, as expeceted:

inc: Authentication failed: -ERR [AUTH] Username and password not accepted.

So it looks like maybe it's working.

But it will be useless until the post hanging  problem is solved.
