Hi, I am using 'Rebex Components 2017 R2'.

On my exchange 2010, modified minimum password length to zero and used empty password to my email account.

Now when i try to login into my account, it is giving exception: string cannot have zero length. Parameter name password at Rebex.net.pop3.login(String userName, String password, Pop3Authentication method) at Rebex.Samples.Worker.DoMethod()

This is the requirement to login in to account with empty password. I am able to login without password through web application, but not able to login through our application. I tried to login with the help of provided sample applications.

Could you help me with this.

Applies to: Rebex Secure Mail

The Login method rejects empty passwords before even attempting authentication. We will disable this check (we will only check for null) and post a link to a hotfix shortly.

Thanks for bringing this issue to our attention!
