We have a mail reader application using Chilkat and a customer is asking to have a connection with a POP3 mail server using STARTTLS security and Encrypted Password. See connection using Thunderbird. We have set the Pop3Stls property = True for the first part but are not able to find how to send password encrypted. Is it possible and if yes, how can it be done? alt text

Set the Pop3SPA property = true for secure password authentication (i.e. encrypted password).

As a side note, when the Pop3Stls property is set to true, the connection is converted to SSL/TLS prior to authentication. The authentication messages, regardless of the scheme, are sent over a secure SSL/TLS connection.
