Storing SMTP passwords

Question asked by smith7180 on Sep 28, 2014

If I were inclined to allow users to store their SMTP credentials in the database so that SMTP credentials could be specified based on user, can I store account passwords so that no user/admin could see the password?

 

If not, assume for a moment that admin's access to user passwords is not an issue. Are there any further concerns about storing passwords? I'm scouring the web for info, and I appreciate any knowledge you can share with me on this issue.

 

On a side note-when I clicked the specify button for 'password' in SMTP options, I was surprised that no calculations I specified 'stuck.' After clicking the 'OK' button, the password was still empty. I had to copy/paste the calculation into the password field. I'm actually not sure if that's the sign of a potential problem (like perhaps you can't specify passwords?).

 

Thanks!
