If you don't need ESMTP AUTH it this stage, don't use it... ;-) I do
need it. And I don't think our setup for some customers should be part
of this thread.

The main change I did was to use Net::SMTP for
check_against_smtp_server(). This enables more possibilties in regard to
features. Not all features may make sense in a specific setup.
