I’m new to Cygwin.

Our users are required to use Active Directory authentication for
sending email , via our exchange server, this is fine for Outlook and
Thunderbird, but not for scripts that run under Cygwin. I configured
sSMTP for a user to use , the issues with this is that the
configuration is in clear text and is visible to all users on the

Thus my questions is  howto configure the Cygwin environment to use
the user’s authentication tokens to send email via Exchange , or in a
way that the users  authentication details are not exposed.
