TLS/SSL authentication coming?

  • Nobody/Anonymous


    First of all, thank you for providing this free product, it is greatly appreciated.

    Now my problem. I am trying to use this software to send emails from a gmail (by google) email account. Gmail gives SMTP access (see this for details) to their accounts. However, when I try to send mail, I get the following error: "‡554 jwSMTP only handles LOGIN or PLAIN authentication at present!". Clearly, the problem seems to be that (as the link indicates), gmail uses TSL (aka SSL) authentication and currently jwsmtp only supports PLAIN and LOGIN. This software could be very useful to me if it supports the authentication required for gmail.

    I look forward to your response, your time and effort is much appreciated.

    Thank you.

      Seconded - I'd really appreciate this too!

      I have the same problem, and give my vote to adding TSL.  The problem is the TSL is designed to prevent span, which programs can easily generate, even though there are some of us legitimate users!

      Oops - I meant "spam", not "span".
