If you are using Exchange in your domain you can log in using Negotiate mechanism by using Imap.LoginSSPI.

Your server must support this feature for you to be able to use it.

Yes, im using Exchange, and server supports SSPI authentication.

I'v got and exception "Command Argument Error. 11" while trying to connect like that:
client.LoginSSPI();
-or-
client.LoginSSPI(Limilabs.Client.Authentication.SSPIMechanism.Negotiate);

Any suggestion what am i doing wrong?
Is your computer in the domain?

Try turning on logging:

Yes, it is in the domain, but where to specify it?

CAPABILITY response does not indicate your server supports GSSAPI or NTLM (AUTH=GSSAPI, AUTH=NTLM is missing). I assume those are turned off.
Thanks for the advice
