Subject: An log/AUTH question

Regularly I get this in my log:

10:18:17 0 SYSTEM Account {cn=mail-blizzard, cn=blizzard.bctel.net,
ou=Netscape Servers} Resources open failed. Error Code=-43
10:18:17 1 SMTP {cn=mail-blizzard, cn=blizzard.bctel.net, ou=Netscape
Servers} AUTH failed: password(evOVKEDUwC) is wrong. Connection from
[204.174.66.6:49691]
10:18:33 2 SMTP-051(blizzard.bctel.net) {S.0000155665} received, 2392 bytes

In this case 204.174.66.6 is a mail server on our provincial ILEC's network.

Scanning my logs, this seems to happen whenever my server either sends or
receives from a "Netscape Server".  I guess this behavior is being triggered
by SIMS advertising AUTH?

Is anyone familiar with Netscape servers?  Is this some type of trust
authentication that Netscape mail servers try to do?
