It doesn't.  As the email you received(1) from ES indicates, to use
anything other than the E-S hierarchy, you must always authenticate. IOW,
log in.

Ah, I see from your follow up you've got things up and running.

(1) why send it here as a PDF?  Just attaching the mail would have
been easier.  Making a 4k email into a 30k PDF wastes people's time,
bandwidth and money.  Still, it could have been worse;  I've seen people
send (not to this list, I hasten to add) 200k screen grabs to show a
dialog box with a 30 character text string in it.  Doing the screen grab
and attaching it to the email probably took longer than typing in the
text would have done.
