Sending Message through SMTP server that is requiering authentication

i have aprogram that was used to send mails using SMTP. the people who are using the program change their exchange mail setting so it becomes need authentication to send an e-mail.
the program uses the SMTP.CCP file. i tried to  debug the program to find out where it fails , and find that it fails after sending the DATA command.

i think that i need to pass the password of the user when creating the connection. but unfortunetly i don't know how.

1) You need to determine the TYPE of authentication required  by the SMTP server(s) in question.

2) You need to provide that authentication.

Since there are several possibilities, please answer #1 and we can take it from there.  You may want to review the RFC that deals with Authenticated SMTP, 2554:

authentication required is a valid account and its password

Dear jhance,
Thank you very much for your last note, it was realy a mistake from my side that i left some questions without accepting or rejecting them. the case was that i asked the qustion then didn't get right or full question, and then no body send again so i forget about it.

regarding my question i'm not going to make any kind of cracking the situation is exactly as i told you.
what happened is that the admin add more security to our exchange so the application is no longer send mails outside.
to compare the situattion, in outlook express, in the account's property you have to add that your server is requiring authentication.

can you give me help now.

Note,,

I think that jhance wrote all what you need to know, try to look in addition
http://members.elysium.pl/brush/smtp-auth/index.html

Did you use Smtp.cpp written by PJ Naughter?
If yes then you can try to set m_From like: (PLAIN)
<info@example.com> AUTH=e+3Dmc2@example.com
You must ask you SMTP server admin for supported format.
