[REBOL] SMTP Authentication
From: berniegs::prodigy::net at: 28-Dec-2004 22:52
I attempted to send an e-mail message to myself for test
purposes using the SEND word, and I got an error message back
from my SMTP server saying that authentication is required. The
message offered some help info at my ISP's web site, but it
wasn't helpful. I'm running REBOL/Core 126.96.36.199.1 on Windows XP.
Here's the conversation I had in the Rebol console, including
the error message:
>> send [berniegs--yahoo--com] "Hi Bernie"
connecting to: smtp.prodigy.yahoo.com
** User Error: Server error: tcp 530 authentication required -
for help go to
** Near: insert port reduce data
I tried to find some information in the Rebol user's guide
concerning SMTP authentication, but I found nothing. I really
don't understand how authentication works, so I'm kind of
stumped. Do I need to provide some kind of password in my e-mail
header? The fields shown in the system/standard/email object
don't provide me with any clues either.
Can anyone help me here? A pointer to the appropriate part of
the Rebol docs, if there is one, would probably help a lot.
The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being
by the tribe. To be your own man is a hard business. If you try
it, you will
be lonely often and sometimes frightened. But no price is too
high to pay
for the privilege of owning yourself.
