    SMTP authentication possible

    Is there an easy way to add SMTP authentication method to the RaQ (RaQ3 running RaQ550 OS) ?

    POP-before-SMTP works well, but is quite outdated and an open relay is surely no choice.

    Pop-Before-SMTP is still a good solution and wasn't it just updated a few months ago?

    No, it really isn't a good solution, because not in all situations people will take their mails first before writing new e-mails.

    Furthermore in such a case, most e-mail clients are not showing helpful error messages to the user - they often just state "SMTP connection refused" or something like that.

    Ideally all mail clients would take mails first in the background always before sending a mail, but unless I get a mail client developer doing this, I think it is better to update the server supporting SMTP authentication ;-)

    But confessed I don't know if this is just as easy as uploading a PKG or more complex and finally results in major OS modifications.

    I fear that it is a complex issue however, otherwise someone surely had already presented a solution. Some time ago I directed this question to the pre-sales support of nuonce.net and earned only a reply mail "Not possible.".
