  • Encrypted password for smtp authentication

    We use a smtp server that requires an encrypted password as authentication method.
    In details, our smtp configuration is:
    connection security: startssl
    Authentication method: encrypted password
    Port: 587

    With this configuration on espocrm outgoing smpt email we get the error "Authentication failed". I guess that the problem is the password that has not been encrypted. How can I set this feature?

    Thank you.

    Nicola.

    I have checked the code after that I did some test with the zend framework. I have seen that to configure an authentication with encrypted password it is necessary set the parameter 'connection_class' to crammd5. This parameter is not configurable in espocrm and it is hard coded in application/Espo/Core/Mail/Sender.php and it is set to 'login'. Therefore, I have changed the line 99 and 138:
    from
    PHP Code:
    $opts['connection_class'] = 'login'
    to
    PHP Code:
    $opts['connection_class'] = 'crammd5'
    and everything worked.

    However, a configuration of the parameter in interface or, at least, in config.php should be done.

      Will be done for default system smtp. Not sure what to do with users smtps. They can use different auth mechanism. I checked multiple web applications and didn't find that one has an ability to specify auth mechanism via UI. Is this used very rarely.

      Thanks.
