NTLM support added to SMTP, IMAP, POP3 and ProxySocket components

  |   Lukas Pokorny

Secure Mail and Mail components now support NTLM, including Integrated Windows Authentication (single sign-on). It is now possible to authenticate as the user under whose context the application is running, without the need to specify the username and password again. This works with MS Exchange and other mail servers that support NTLM authentication.

ProxySocket component, used by both Rebex Mail and Rebex FTP, also supports NTLM authentication for HTTP CONNECT proxies.

Complete list of changes for build 2438: 

  • IMAP, POP3, SMTP: Added support for NTLM authentication.
  • IMAP: Added support for EXTERNAL authentication (to be used with client certificate authentication).
