I looked for the thread but didn't find anything relevant.  Do you know how
long ago it was?

I actually have AUTH turned on, my users just aren't "forced" to use it
yet... but I'm not sure exactly how SMTP Auth will help with this.  Does an
email arriving that has been AUTH'ed somehow become immune to RBL checks?
