I want to change the default email authentication to 'Password' from
When sending emails out, it always defaults to 'MD5 Challenge-Response' and even if i change it to password, it automatically resets, sometimes even before i have managed to get the email off (usually resulting in 3 copies being sent).
I could be doing something wrong, but if i could just change the order which may be in a plist or strings file, then it would automatically default to the correct one.
Any help appreciated, but obviously not major important.
I should add that i believe that it is buried within the /library/mail/accounts.plist - AuthenticationScheme which currently is set to 'X-APOP' (presumably MD5 Challenge-Response), but if that's the case I need to determine what string to replace it with.
TIA to all who respond

i suddenly started receiving an "X-APOP authentication" error on my iphone when checking mail, and when i went to settings couldn't change the authentication settings (always reverted to MD5)..
so after a lot of searching on the net, it seems sometimes the mail account can get corrupted.. the fix? delete the account, and re-add it.. now it works like a charm!
