CMake and OpenSSL support!

Hi, here are some news from the front!

We migrated the build system to CMake. SCons is still usable, but should be used only for development purposes. Please note that autotools scripts should now be generated with CMake, as it has been removed from SCons script.

Thanks to the help of Mehmet Bozkurt, VMime now supports OpenSSL for SSL/TLS features, in addition to the existing support for GnuTLS.

We hope these new features will make deployment of VMime easier.

Connecting to GMail SMTP/IMAP

Some users fequently ask me how to connect to GMail SMTP service with VMime. You have to connect to server using SMTP protocol (not SMTPS), and set the connection.tls property to true to initiate a secured connection using STARTTLS.

The following code is known to work:

vmime::utility::url url("smtp://");
vmime::ref <vmime::net::transport> tr = session->getTransport(url);
tr->setProperty("connection.tls", true);
tr->setProperty("auth.username", "gmail-login");
tr->setProperty("auth.password", "gmail-password");
tr->setProperty("options.need-authentication", true);

To connect to IMAP on GMail, use the following code:

vmime::utility::url url("imaps://");
vmime::ref <vmime::net::store> store = session->getStore(url);
