    Default Basic Authentication access

    I consider using zimbra in my network but I need to authenticate each user with the HTTP "basic-authentication" process and not with a HTML form.

    Is such a method already supported in zimbra or does it need to be configured / developped ?

    Thanks,

    We don't have basic-auth for the web-app login out of the box but it would be easy to add single sign-on with preauth.

    Our servlets all support basic auth so maybe small hack would be to have users first navigate to a servlet url and get the basic auth prompt then go to the app. Not as clean from a user perspective but should work.

    Thank you for your advises.

    I would try the small hack but I would like to understand it :
    - which URI should the user call first to have the basic popup
    - which URI should it use after ?

    In fact, what do you call servlet and what do you call web-app ?
