RE: mutt + smtp authentication

I too would like to know how to get through this SMTP auth fieasco, I
have spent much time and got no where.

So basically, I am still going to try the article, but

1) is there a Debian package with the SASL support for Postfix out there
that I can install?

2) is there an easier solution, other than telling the laptop clients to
use the smtp server they are dialed into?

3) are the passwords with SASL support sent in clear text?

I can see how that could be a problem. I'm lucky enough that my isp has
not listed inself in the DUL list. Not being on dialup might help too.
