I provided an *unsecure* patch to send E-mails using login/password using a
remote SMTP server without using SSL or TLS, so AFAIK sending easy to sniff
login and password!

I am about to add the patch there anyway, IMHO the minimal improvements needed
for inclusion into Yanel are:
- the parametrization has to be improved so that the login and password are
read from a separate file with minimal read permissions
- we should (at least try to) use encryption
