ImapLogin Method (String, String, AuthenticationMethods)
Logs in a mail account on the IMAP4 server.

Namespace: MailBee.ImapMail
Assembly: MailBee.NET (in MailBee.NET.dll) Version: 11.2.0 build 590 for .NET 4.5
Syntax
public bool Login(
	string accountName,
	string password,
	AuthenticationMethods authMethods
)

Parameters

accountName
Type: SystemString
The user account name on the server.
password
Type: SystemString
The password of the user account on the server.
authMethods
Type: MailBeeAuthenticationMethods
A set of authentication methods which can be used when logging in a mailbox.

Return Value

Type: Boolean
true if a login attempt succeeded; otherwise, false.
Exceptions
ExceptionCondition
MailBeeExceptionAn error occurred and ThrowExceptions is true.
Remarks

Authentication methods are tried from more secure to less secure. If authMethods is set to Auto, MailBee will try to use the most secure method supported by the server but will downgrade to less secure methods (to the simplest "LOGIN account password" authentication in the worst case) if better methods are not available.

To use OAuth 2.0 authentication (XOAUTH2 in Gmail), see the example in OAuth2 topic.

Examples
This sample connects to an IMAP4 server and logs in a user account using secure authentication methods only. Use of insecure methods is not allowed.
// To use the code below, import MailBee namespaces at the top of your code.
using MailBee;
using MailBee.ImapMail;

// The actual code (put it into a method of your class).
Imap imp = new Imap();
imp.Connect("mail.domain.com");
imp.Login("jdoe@domain.com", "secret", AuthenticationMethods.SaslCramMD5 | AuthenticationMethods.SaslNtlm);
imp.Disconnect();
