Attributes

Remarks

The TargetName property allows an application to get or set the SPN to use for authentication when integrated Windows authentication with extended protection. If the TargetName property is not set, the default value for this SPN is of the form "SMTPSVC/<host>" where <host> is the hostname of the SMTP mail server.

The default value for this network element in the SMTP configuration file can also be changed by manually editing the machine or application configuration files directly.
