Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Cyrus SASL packaged for Solus is not built with LOGIN authentication support, which is what Outlook/Exchange servers require. As a result, email clients that rely on it fail to send emails using Outlook/Exchange accounts, while sending works fine with non-Exchange servers. See for instance this issue at @d99kris' nmail console-based client: https://github.com/d99kris/nmail/issues/22

Some Linux distributions package SASL plugins separately (for example named libsasl2-modules) but we haven't found any such package for Solus.
