[REBOL] SMTP Authentication

From: berniegs::prodigy::net at: 28-Dec-2004 22:52

Hi, 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 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: ** 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.
