Holds local certificate to be used for authentication.
A ICertificate object. Reference to
object that holds certificate (and private key) information.
[Set] object.Certificate [= ICertificate]
The Certificate Property syntax has these parts:
evaluating to an object of type wodSmtp.
If you don't plan to deal with certificates or private keys, most
probably you will never use this property. But - if you plan to
connect to servers that require client certificate for the
connection then you will need to specify this property.
This property should be set to valid ICertificate object which is
part of our 'Certificate Management library' shipped with the
installation package of wodSmtp. It will allow you to Load, Save,
Generate... certificates which can be used directly by the server,
or should by signed by 3rd party authority and then used with the
server. It can combine both OpenSSL type certificates, as well ones
located in your Microsoft Windows crypto stores - and handle them
Setting certificate is really easy. Typically, you could do it like
- Set Smtp.Certificate = New Certificate
wodSmtp internally will never create this object (it only uses it),
so if you don't plan to use ICertificate object, you don't have to
distribute wodCertificate.DLL with your application.
