I'm seeing a lot of SMTP-AUTH and pop-before-smtp (which can easily
coexist on the same server) on port 587.  Current versions of popular
MTAs all seem to support at least one of those, albeit sometimes
not very conveniently.

It would be nice if we could use SMTP-AUTH on port 25, but the
spammers ruined that for us around the same time they ruined courtesy
relay.
