Tim Hibbard CEO for EnGraph software

I was having problems getting new tasks and build alerts from TFS.  I found this post by Vertigo that gave me a great jump start.  But, it didn't tell how to authenticate against our SMTP server.  Based on a SWAG (Scientific Wild A** Guess), I added smtpPassword and smtpUser keys to the web.config.

It worked like a champ and now our web.config in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server\Web Services\Services looks like this:

... <add key="emailNotificationFromAddress" value="tfs@domain.com" /> <add key="smtpServer" value="mail.domain.com" /> <add key="smtpPassword" value="password" /> <add key="smtpUser" value="user@domin.com" /> ...

Fantastic find!!
One drawback is the password in plain text... I can live with that considering the alternatives... :)
