Required email authentication on an SMTP client? I've never heard of such a thing. My server system doesn't have authentication. Can it be optional?

Got an unknown response to the authentication process (503 - 5.5.1 Error: authentication not enabled)

Alternatively I'll request proper authentication per this error:
Got an unknown response to the authentication process (530 - 5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS command first. wm3sm15717280pbc.4 - gsmtp)

LOL. I feel like this is a trick. It doesn't work with or without authentication. Ummm....
I would think that all outgoing mail servers these days would require authentication, for a number of reasons? Even if it's not directly it's often because you are required to authenticate for POP3 receiving before you can send.

But, if you leave the password empty in the account setup, it shouldn't try to do any authentication, or that's how it should be working.
Nope. Doesn't work with or without auth.
Oh, I didn't realize the dialog was forcing you to enter it. You may be kind of out of luck until the next drop when I can get this fixed.
I can wait. In the mean time I'll see if I can figure out how to do SMS.
I updated the dialog not to require the password. I don't have any way to test this, so just give it another try after the next beta drop and see how it's doing.
OK, 4.2.912 has this change, so try it and let me know what happens.
Works! Yippie!

Errr. Pretty sure the RFC says the body is optional Smile
Yeh, the e-mail support code doesn't require it. I was just assuming, for the purposes of this usage, you'd never send one without passing along some useful info in the body, so the action command requires it. You can probably put in some bogus value for the meantime.
