Found due to login not working on a host;. The password they provided was VERY long (69 characters) and encoded in base64 longer than 76 characters (92 characters). Using the awesome debug=6 option I found that it was breaking the password into 2 rows. Fixed AUTH LOGIN section line 446: socket_write(encode_base64($auth->{password},$CRLF)) to socket_write(encode_base64($auth->{password},'').$CRLF) # LONG ENCODED PASSWORDS WERE RAPPING AT 76 CHARS This issue likely exists in any encode_base64 line that can be longer.than 76 characters encoded socket_write(encode_base64($auth->{user},$CRLF)) socket_write( "AUTH PLAIN " . encode_base64(join("\0", $auth->{user}, $auth->{user}, $auth->{password}), $CRLF) socket_write(encode_base64("$auth->{user} $response", $CRLF)) socket_write(encode_base64($response, ""), $CRLF) Hope this helps out. Scott
