This will have no effect. There is no "Auth" key mentioned anywhere in the documentation
Are you sure? The POD does not explicitly show $mail{Auth}, but it states:
Keys are NOT case-sensitive.

I see this in the sendmail code:

# arrange keys case $k = ucfirst lc($k);

I have a feeling that $mail{Auth} is the same as $mail{auth}.

    Well it turns out that you are quite right. There has been a new release of Mail::Sendmail which adds "auth" as a field and is the first stable release in some 15 years (v0.80 has the auth field, v0.79 doesn't). That will teach me to assume it was abandoned.

    The comment in the docs now says "Experimental SMTP AUTH support (LOGIN PLAIN CRAM-MD5 DIGEST-MD5)", so that's the progress. Thanks for the heads-up.
