Thanks for the feedback Henk. I have managed to get this working in Outlook by setting up a new email account and configuring the outbound SMTP server to be my Diafaan SMTP stand alone server, including the user name and password set up on the Diafaan SMTP server, using Port 26 and setting up the Outlook accounts Incoming server as my standard SMTP server under port 25. It seems to work well, although I need to sort out the sender id, but I see that this has been covered in another post by utilizing a script.

Thanks again.

Hello Kev,

The SMTPServerUserName and SMTPServerUserPassword properties in the Email Connector properties set the user name and password of the built-in SMTP server. The SMTP server can use un-encrypted and encrypted SMTP authentication depending on the capabilities of the email client.

The user name and password can be added to the SMTP server properties in the account settings of Outlook. It is a central setting for the email account, it can not be set on a per email basis.

Regards, Henk

I notice in the advanced tab of the Email connector, there are the following properties (SMTPServerUserName and SMTPServerUserPassword). I am using the built in Diafaan SMTP Server via this connector to offer Email to SMS through my server, but I want to secure the connection using a user name and password. Firstly are these the correct properties to use? and secondly how does a client like Outlook for example send through the user name and password? does it need to be added to the subject line or something. Any help that you can provide would be gratefully received. Thanks.
