Or you can simply ignore them completely w/out logging them, since AUTH
is a useless protocol, and you really shouldn't have a real AUTH daemon
running on your box in any case.
On this topic also consider the "dummy" AUTH server in inetd...
Someone (you?) posted one to the mailing list, and/or modified inetd to
use a dummy one. I'd have to go look in the archives.
It's in there now, vastly improved over my initial submission.
However, I haven't had an auth server running on my box for over 3
years, and it hasn't appeared to have hurt anything. :)
I can wait the extra 2-3 seconds for the auth server to timeout to get
my email. :)
It can be a problem for a busy mail server (guess why I did it :-)
