+Summary: [2.0] SmtpClient always uses authentication
+In the ctor of SmtpClient, ConfigurationManager.GetSection is used to get 
+the smtp configuration section, and initialize credentials (and host, ...) 
+from values in the configuration file.
+However, ConfigurationManager.GetSection always returns an initialized 
+SmtpSection with properties initialized to their default values.
+As a result, the SmtpClient has credentials set and always uses 
+authentication to connect to the SMTP server.
+To resolve this we need to be able to determine whether there is indeed an 
+smtp section in the configuration file, and if there is, obtain an 
+SmtpSection with no default values set.
+To reproduce, compile and run the following code snippet replacing the 
+host and email addresses with valeus specific to your setup:
+using System.Net.Mail;
+public class Test
+  static void Main ()
+  {
+    SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient ("<smtp host>");
+    smtp.Send ("no-reply at somewhere.com", "<recipient>",
+			"SUBJECT", "OK");
+  }
