Thanks Christian,

This was a good question. I must've had SMTP authentication methods in mind when writing the documentation because "LOGIN" would be a typical SMTP auth method. It should be "Basic" instead of "LOGIN". I'll update the online refdocs.

HTTP authentication methods, including proxy auth methods, can be "basic", "ntlm", "digest", etc.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basic_access_authentication
or http://www.innovation.ch/personal/ronald/ntlm.html
or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digest_access_authentication

I believe you can set the proxy auth to any of these three. You don't actually need to set it, because the proxy server will respond with a 407 status code indicating what auth methods it supports, an Chilkat re-send with a valid auth method (internal to the Chilkat method call).
