I used Frank's telnet.r and changed the port to 25, and got this

== {220 ESMTP^M^M 250-AUTH LOGIN PLAIN XYMCOOKIE^M 250-PIPELINING... So, you can see that Yahoo does not support CRAM-MD5 authentication. I suggest that esmtp be fixed to send a "EHLO" greeting instead of the "HELO", and then parse the response to determine what authentication schemes are supported, and then use one that Rebol also supports. -- Graham Chiu
