Email Authentication

Why do I need to use authentication?

Authentication ensures that the person sending fax or SMS messages from your email address are authorised to do so. People can send messages and pretend to send them from your email address, if we did not validate that you are the correct send then someone could send messages and charge the cost to your account.

What are my authentication options?

The following options are provided for your convenience

  1. Challenge-Response based. See What is challenge-response based authentication? for more information.
  2. Password based authentication. See What is password based authentication? for more information.

What is challenge-response based authentication?

Challenge-Response authenticates the sender of message requests by responding with a validation email. The validation email contains the information requested to be sent and asks for the user to check this data. When you reply to this email, leaving the subject line intact this authorises the message to be sent.

What is password based authentication?

Password authentication does not send you back an email but checks the body of the email message you send for a pre-registered Messij password. The password must the first line of the message body and start with password=. For example if the password was BOB then the first line of your message should be password=BOB
