Hi all,

I attached a patch to bug 304005 which implements SMTP authentication 
support for Bugzilla:

As I don't use SMTP auth myself, I have no way to test it. If that's a 
feature you expected for a long time, I suggest you test my patch and 
give me your feedback in the bug itself.

To have it work, apply the patch (-p0) to a recent development snapshot 
(e.g. Bugzilla 3.1.3 or better. The patch won't work on Bugzilla 3.0.x 
as is; you will have to backport it), run and go to the 
"Email" panel in the "Parameters" page. You will see two new fields for 
the username and password required by the SMTP server.
