Email client authentification customization

Hi. Could you please help to figure out how to set authentication method for email client explicitly? We would like to explicitly select basic or md5 authentification, but it is not clear which api method should be used.


Can you please elaborate the requirements in detail that what you are looking in API to offer you in your case. We will investigate that on our need to assist you further.

Sure. The requirement is to make library authenticating on SMTP, POP or IMAP server using certain authentication method, like CramMD5 for instance and avoid connection if different method is used. We were unable to find out which parameter can be used to configure client objects for that purpose.


I have created a ticket with ID EMAILNET-40027 in our issue tracking system to further investigate the possibility of implementing the stated requirements. This thread has been linked with the issue so that you may be notified once the issue will be addressed.

Okay. Could you please also describe how the client classes choose authentication method to use by default?


We request for your patience and will share the appropriate solution as soon as feedback will be shared by the team.

Thank you a lot for your attention. I just thought the last question could be a little bit easier.


We will update you as soon as possible in this regard.
