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,
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.
