I am using tSendMail to send emails on success and on error conditions. I have configured the to/from/host to use context variables. This is all working fine.
I would like to be able to include "Needs Authentication" (a check box) and the user name/password in the context as well. However, I have not been able to figure out how to specify NEED_AUTH variable. This is the name shown as a tool tip for the check box.
Can someone give me some pointers on how to do this?

You can't define NEED_AUTH variable, "Needs Authentication" is only a check box. You need to select/disable it manually and use the name/password variable.
That is unfortunate. If the job is exported and moved to different environments to be run, the context allows for configuration of *MOST* items. Could this be added to a wish list for development? Not all environments have the same value for "needs authentication" for outgoing email.
I completely agree with mbaucsoft. This needs to be added to a list of things to improve sooner than later. Email settings are a prime example of where context should be used. They almost always change from environment to environment. My project is experiencing the same issue and have had to use the work-around of building different jobs for emailing based on the various environments.
Sorry to up an old entry, but I haven't found another entry with the same problem.
I need to configure the tSendMail component for different environments with diffrent security parameters.
(no security at all on DEV, password on TEST and full SSL in PROD)
A shame that checkboxes can't be set easily by context params.
BTW I work with TOS 4.1.2
