public int getAuthMechanism(); public void setAuthMechanism(int authMechanism);
Enumerated values: public final static int amUserPassword = 0; public final static int amCRAMMD5 = 1; public final static int amNTLM = 2; public final static int amAPOP = 3; public final static int amSASLPlain = 4; public final static int amSASLDigestMD5 = 5; public final static int amKerberos = 6; public final static int amXOAUTH2 = 7;
This property is used as the authentication mechanism when connecting to the mail server. By default, this property is amUserPassword (0), and default plaintext authentication is used to login to the server. Other, more secure, options include amCRAMMD5 (1) for CRAM-MD5, amNTLM (2) for NTLM authentication, amAPOP (3) for APOP authentication, and amSASLDigestMD5 (5) for SASL DIGEST-MD5 authentication.
amSASLPlain (4) is also available, but most servers require a secure SSL connection when utilizing this authentication mechanism.
amKerberos (6) is for Kerberos authentication. NOTE: This functionality is only available in Windows.
