Ok, I've now investigated, and it's both a bug in smtpmail.el, and a
misfeature in auth-source.el, I think.

What we want is to be able to say "give me the credentials for
server:port, and prompt and create the missing bits".  This doesn't seem
possible today.  If there is a "user" entry in ~/.authinfo, that should
obviously be used, and it should just prompt for the password.

going to add that.
