SMTP Authentication Bypass

SMTP Authentication is a security measure that can be very beneficial in the fight against spam and unauthorized email. Unfortunately, some applications do not have support for SMTP authentication when sending mail. Most often, these are web sites that have automated mail sending mechanisms.

The solution is to add the IP addresses of the servers/sites to SmarterMail's SMTP Authentication Bypass. Any IP address entered into this page will not be asked to provide an SMTP Authentication login. In this list you can see all IP addresses that are bypassing SMTP Authentication.

To get started, click the Security button on the main toolbar, then select SMTP Authentication Bypass from the Security folder tree view.

New Icon - Click on this button to add additional IP addresses to the bypass. More information can be found below.

Edit Icon - Editing and item can be done three ways:

  • Select the item and then choose the Edit icon from the actions toolbar, or
  • Right-click the item and choose Edit from the drop down list, or
  • Double-click the item you would like to edit

Delete Icon - Deleting an item can be done two ways:

  • Select the item and click the Delete icon from the actions toolbar, or
  • Right-click the time and select Delete from the drop down list

Adding a Bypass

IP Address - Enter a single IP address in dotted quad notation (X.X.X.X) in this box if you want to bypass only a single IP (ex: 192.168.1.26).

IP Range - Enter a range of IP addresses in the two boxes, and all IP addresses that are contained in the range will be bypassed (ex: 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.255).
