AuthMechanism Property

The authentication mechanism to be used when connecting to the mail server.

Object Oriented Interface

public function getAuthMechanism();
public function setAuthMechanism($value);

Procedural Interface

cloudmail_gmail_get($res, 1 );
cloudmail_gmail_set($res, 1, $value );

Default Value



By default, AuthMechanism is amUserPassword (0), and default plaintext authentication is used to login to the server.

If AuthMechanism is set to amSASLXOAuth2 (7), an OAUTH authorization string is used to authenticate. The Authorization property must be set to a valid authorization string.

At the time of this writing no other authentication mechanisms are supported by Google.
