    Sure, every crypt method works (only SSHA is the most common today).

    I'm using it only with postfix where you have to let postfix advertise
    smtpauth only if the connection has proceeded starttls and is encrypted.
    No password is going over the wire in cleartext. You may check out the
    following options in postfix for this to work:

    smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
    broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes
    smtpd_client_restrictions = permit_sasl_authenticated
    smtpd_recipient_restrictions =
    smtpd_use_tls = yes
    smtpd_tls_auth_only = yes
