.NET Framework 4.5 : SMTP Client authentication modes?

Has someone found an official reference of which SMTP authentication modes are actually supported by the

class please?

Official MSDN seems silent on that one ; if not, where can I find a suitable SMTP client library (free or not)?


If you take a look at the source code, it looks like only LOGIN is supported unless FEATURE_PAL is defined (not sure what that is), in which case NTLM, GSSAPI, and WDIGEST are also supported.

You can take a look at Microsoft's referencesource here:
