Support for OAuth for SMTP Configuration
Dear DocuWare Team and Community Members,
I would like to propose an urgent improvement that can significantly enhance the security and reliability of DocuWare. Currently, DocuWare only supports SMTP Basic Authentication for SMTP configuration. While this is undoubtedly a convenient method for sending emails, it may no longer be sufficient in today's increasingly interconnected and security-conscious world.
Microsoft and other industry leaders recommend the use of OAuth for secure communication with email servers. OAuth provides additional protection against unauthorized access and security risks that can arise when using Basic Authentication. The implementation of OAuth for SMTP configuration in DocuWare is essential for all DocuWare users who wish to follow Microsoft's recommendation to disable Basic Authentication in their Exchange Online.
Here are some reasons why supporting OAuth for SMTP in DocuWare is of great importance:
1. Security: OAuth offers a higher level of security by making access to email accounts more secure and authenticated.
2. Compliance: Using OAuth aligns with current best practices and security standards, which are crucial for many industries and businesses.
3. Reliability: OAuth provides a more reliable authentication method that is less susceptible to issues related to passwords and security breaches.
I encourage all members of the DocuWare community to support this proposal for increased security and reliability in our DocuWare system.
Thank you for your attention and your commitment to the continuous improvement of DocuWare.
