Re: Balsa 2.5.6-1:Cannot initialize GSS security context

It seems that everything is working well with the exception of sending mails via the IMAP account (the only 
one I have) of an Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service. I always get the failure message 'Connecting SMTP server 
x@x.x (email@x.x) failed: cannot initialize GSS security context: An invalid status code was supplied'.

I tried to reproduce the issue with the latest GIT code, sending messages to a Postfix server with GSSAPI 
enabled, but I unfortunately cannot reproduce the issue (i.e. it works for me).  The error message is 
confusing, but all we can get from the kerberos libs…  Maybe Microsoft behaves differently as expected by the 
Linux libs; I don't have access to such a machine.

Did you check if you have a valid Kerberos ticket (say “klist”)?  Did you use Kerberos authentication on your 
old machine?  As the server offers other authentication methods, it might be an option to disable Kerberos.  
Unfortunately, the code does not try to fall back to an other method if Kerberos fails, I'll fix that.

I will set up a vm with your config and try to reproduce the issue, but this will take some time, as well as 
the fallback method if Kerberos fails (I'll be away from my development box during the next few days).
