[REBOL] Re: SMTP authentication

From: kitson::maxis::net::my at: 18-Apr-2001 0:07

Hi Scott, No good I'm afraid - SMTP doesn't seem to like it at all -
>> trace/net on >> send [abc--def--com] "now is the time"
Net-log: ["Opening tcp for" smtp] ** Access Error: Cannot connect to myuser:[mypass--smtp--maxis--net--my] ** Where: send ** Near: smtp-port: open [scheme: 'smtp] if email? It gets further without user: and pass: until the authentication error
>> send [abc--def--com] "now is the time"
Net-log: ["Opening tcp for" smtp] Net-log: [none "220"] Net-log: { Microsoft SMTP MAIL ready at Tue, 17 Apr 2001 23:34:58 +0800 Version: 5.5.1877.467.46} Net-log: "220 ESMTP spoken here" Net-log: [["HELO" system/network/host] "250"] Net-log: "250 Hello []" Net-log: "MAIL FROM: <[kitson--maxis--net--my]>" Net-log: [none "250"] ** User Error: Server error: tcp 505 Client was not authenticated ** Near: insert port reduce data I use 2 servers which need authentication like this - interestingly, the only server I use which doesn't need send authentication is Yahoo (although it is necessary to do a POP read first. Over time I think we will see most SMTP servers require authentication in order to prevent spamming so a solution is going to be required at some point. Any more ideas? Regards, Nick
