I have never seen a client that depends on seeing AUTH=LOGIN in the EHLO

by Exim not advertising AUTH=LOGIN.

Note this is an old client problem, and the inline code comments I have is:

    // Support for NON-RFC AUTH=LOGIN
    // - Designed by NETSCAPE, SUPPORTED by MICROSOFT
    // - supported by at least NS4, NS4.5, OL4, OL5

This is in the last recorded source control version dating back to 2001.
