    Hello guys

    I was wondering if its possible to have a login screen of an app to use email as username and the email password to Authenticate my users

    Took a look at the Email API2 but could not see anywhere where it will let me check the password and not change(post) to the server.

    Regards
    Evans

    Hello :)

    Could you elaborate some more on this question? For instance, what are you attempting to have your users authenticate into?

    Thank you.

    well just a simple php page i want to create a login screen to my own php page but username and password should be of the email. so even when they change the email password the app will recognize the new app as well

    more like to create a function that checks if email match and password.

    If I understand correctly, you want to synchronize your email passwords with a third-party script so that users can access that script using their email login credentials. There's no native API functions that will make this task easier for email accounts that I am aware of. You may want to consult with a developer to find an alternative method of implementing this, or to see what's involved with such a script.

    Thank you.
