Method SMTPClient():setAuthentication() Professional

Sets the method for authenticating the user.

:setAuthentication( <cAuthentication> ) --> lSuccess
The parameter <cAuthentication> is a character string which specifies the method used for authenticating the user. This must be set to the string "login" or "plain".

The method returns .T. (true) when the authentication method can be set or .F. (false) in case of failure.


By calling the method :setAuthentication(), the method for passing the credentials to the server for user authentication can be selected. The SMTPClient class currently supports the PLAIN and LOGIN methods. See the method :connect() for details on how to specify the credentials of the SMTP user.
