aerc-smtp - SMTP configuration for aerc(1)
aerc implements the SMTP protocol as specified by RFC 5321.
SMTP configuration may be done interactively with the :new-account command. In accounts.conf (see aerc-config(5)), the following SMTP-specific options are available: outgoing smtp[s][+plain|+login|+none|+oauthbearer]://username[:password]@hostname[:port]?[:oauth2_params] Remember that all fields must be URL encoded. The "@" symbol, when URL encoded, is %40. The meaning of the scheme component is: smtp://: Unencrypted SMTP smtps://: SMTP with TLS/SSL Additionally, you can specify an authentication mechanism like so: +none: No authentication is required to use this SMTP server. You may omit the username and password in this case. +plain: Authenticate with a username and password using AUTH PLAIN. This is the default behavior. +login: Authenticate with a username and password using AUTH LOGIN. This is an obsolete protocol, but is required for some common webmail providers. +oauthbearer: SMTP with TLS/SSL using OAUTHBEARER Authentication. See documentation in aerc- imap(5) for usage. outgoing-cred-cmd Specifies the command to run to get the password for the SMTP account. This command will be run using `sh -c [command]`. If a password is specified in the outgoing option, the password will take precedence over this command. Example: pass hostname/username smtp-starttls Set this to `yes` if the server uses STARTTLS. In that case you should also use smtp instead of smtps.
