If we permit unauthenticated SMTP over port 25 on our mail server, can we simply leave the following fields blank in the user setup:

- Username
- Password

How about these fields:

- Auth Type (I presume we'd leave it set to 'Plain')
- Use SSL (I presume we'd leave it set to 'sslOff')

I'll admit I didn't just try it, and I've traced some of the scripts that pass these values along to the plug-in, but rather than master the plug-in I thought I'd ask if it's as simple as this.

Call me lazy ;-)

Hey Mark,

That is how I'd have tried it, but I have to say that I don't have any experience running unauthenticated. Let me know if you have trouble getting it working.
