Devon Hillard commented on JBSEAM-4176:

I've worked around this by sub-classing MailSession with my own APPLICATION precedence component which overrides setPassword and setUsername, with added checks for empty strings, and setting null to the member vars in those cases.  Works fine.

>             Project: Seam
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Core
>    Affects Versions: 2.1.1.GA
>            Reporter: Devon Hillard
>            Priority: Minor
> (Summary could be worded better)
> If you define MailSession in components.xml like this:
> <mail:mail-session host="@mailhost@" port="@mailport@" username="@mailusername@" password="@mailpassword@" />
> And set the mailusername and mailpassword in the environment specific components.properties files, you can't use a mail server without authentication in any environment.
> Putting this in a components.properties:
> mailusername=
> seems to set an empty string into the property, which passes the "(getUsername() != null" test in MailSession.java used to determine if it should authenticate with the mail server.
> Therefore it tries to authenticate with empty username and password, which typically fails on a system that doesn't not require auth for outgoing mail (from internal servers for instance).
> In this scenario our dev environment needs to use a mail server that does require auth, but in production, it needs to use a mail server without auth.  Currently this is requiring us to manually change the components.xml to have:
> <mail:mail-session host="@mailhost@" port="@mailport@" />
> in the production ear.
> A simple fix would be to change the logic in MailSession to do:
> getUsername() != null && getUsername().trim().length() > 0 instead of the current null check.
> The relevant lines to change are 105, 109, and 152.
