true if a login attempt succeeded; otherwise, false.
MailBeeExceptionAn error occurred and ThrowExceptions is true.

This method will try to authenticate using the best (the most secure) authentication method supported by the server, but will downgrade to less secure methods (to the simplest USER/PASS authentication in the worst case) if better methods are not available.

You can also force using a particular authentication method with Login(String, String, AuthenticationMethods) overload passing a method like Regular.

Note Note
If SafeMode is true, MailBee will use the simplest USER/PASS authentication by default (Regular option). This can often help to troubleshoot login problems (many mail servers implement secure authentication methods incorrectly).
This sample connects to a POP3 server, logs in a user account, and displays the total number of messages in an inbox.
// To use the code below, import MailBee namespaces at the top of your code.
using MailBee;
using MailBee.Pop3Mail;

// The actual code (put it into a method of your class).
Pop3 pop = new Pop3();
pop.Login("jdoe", "secret");
Console.WriteLine(pop.InboxMessageCount + " message(s) in inbox");
