Re: Configuring multiple SMTP hosts

Hi Albrecht,

Which step do you need approval for? Do you refer to or something else?

I actually wrote code for re-working the authentication and for probing servers based upon the domain name in the context of the OAuth2 implementation (Balsa issue #40).  The latter project is somewhat “stalled”, though, basically because it is apparently extremely difficult to get approval from the providers (Google, Yahoo; Microsoft is more or less working) for a non-commercial Open Source project without external audits etc.

I could try to extract the authentication and probing code (also related to issue #55) into an new branch, but without the actual OAuth2 implementation (which would then just be an additional method, plus the OAuth2 layer implementation).  This shouldn't be too difficult.  What do you think?
