NAME
       aerc-smtp - SMTP	configuration for aerc(1)

SYNOPSIS
       aerc implements the SMTP	protocol as specified by RFC 5321.

CONFIGURATION
       SMTP configuration may be done interactively with the :new-account com-
       mand.

       In accounts.conf	(see aerc-config(5)), the following SMTP-specific op-
       tions are available:

       outgoing
	   smtp[s][+plain|+none]://username[:password]@hostname[:port]

	   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 mechansim 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.

       outgoing-cred-cmd
	   Specifies the command to run	to get the password for	the SMTP ac-
	   count. This command will be run using `sh -c	[command]`. If a pass-
	   word	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.
