If the IMAP server supports one or more SASL authentication mechanisms, then the SASL mechanisms that both the client and server support are tried in order of greatest security to weakest security. Once a SASL authentication mechanism is found that both client and server support, the credentials are used to authenticate.
If the server does not support SASL or if no common SASL mechanisms can be found, then LOGIN command is used as a fallback.
|To prevent the usage of certain authentication mechanisms, simply remove them from the AuthenticationMechanisms hash set before calling this method.|
