SMTP Max Password Length

Product Name: VersaLink® C7020/C7025/C7030 Multifunction Printer
Operating System: Not Applicable

We utilize sendgrid for Scan to Email functionality and they have transitioned from basic authentication of username/password to api keys. Their API keys are 69 characters long. Talking with Send Grid they said Xerox can't accept the password and are working on a solution. Does anyone know what the max length for a SMTP password is?

Re: SMTP Max Password Length

Hi jcraw,

   This question came up in regards to the Xerox AltaLink products when a customer began requiring 44 characters passwords to utilize Amazon SES email. On that product the character limit for passwords is 32 characters. I don't have your exact machine available to look at remotely, but I have a similar one. On that machine I counted the characters that I could enter in the password field before it stopped taking them and it was 64 characters. 32 and 64 character limits seem logical. This 69 character requirement seems unusual and not something that I would expect many manufacturers to plan for.

Good luck!
