FAQ / Server Products

I cannot get Outlook 2010 (Beta) to authenticate using SMTP, POP3 or IMAP to a Hexamail server. What can I do?
Microsoft have broken SPA support in Outlook 2010.

In Outlook 2007 you can use the option to require Secure Password Authentication and it will work correctly. With the new version of Outlook this no longer works. It even fails to authenticate against Microsoft IIS 6 SMTP server (their own product).

Uncheck the box called "Require logon using Secure Password Authentication" in the email account properties, and also under "More Settings.../Outgoing Server" if it is checked.
