summary:

[3.8] bpo-27820: Fix AUTH LOGIN logic in smtplib.SMTP (GH-24118) (#24833)

* bpo-27820: Fix AUTH LOGIN logic in smtplib.SMTP (GH-24118)

* Fix auth_login logic (bpo-27820)

* Also fix a longstanding bug in the SimSMTPChannel.found_terminator() method that causes inability to test
SMTP AUTH with initial_response_ok=False.

(cherry picked from commit 7591d9455eb37525c832da3d65e1a7b3e6dbf613)

* Set timeout to 15 directly.

+Fixed long-standing bug of smtplib.SMTP where doing AUTH LOGIN with
+initial_response_ok=False will fail.
+
+The cause is that SMTP.auth_login _always_ returns a password if provided
+with a challenge string, thus non-compliant with the standard for AUTH
+LOGIN.
+
+Also fixes bug with the test for smtpd.
