10.8 server.app Mail SMTP Authentication


So having just upgraded from 10.7-10.8, i noticed that you no longer need authentication method to send mail. Doesn't seem very secure to be able to send mail without a username and password!

In 10.7 you could specify a username/pass as a requirement. In 10.8 there doesn't seem to be the option. Although it says, "Choose which authentication methods should be used when sending or receiving mail", i can still send without a username and password.

Is it a Terminal job these days as Apple have trimmed down the server.app?

Thanks in advance.
