    Please note: For authentications against external services, Open-Xchange has now implemented OAuth, and OAuth will be used whenever the service is supported. Most likely OAuth will become the industry standard for authentication of external services and it is already supported by several services: For example LinkedIn®, Twitter®, and Facebook®. Using OAuth has several advantages compared to existing implementations used in the Open-Xchange user interface: with the new authentication method, users only need to authorize once to an external social service. After the initial authentication has been done, all additional updates can then be performed without having to login again (as long as the credentials at the external service remain unchanged). After the update to the new Open-Xchange major release, users will need to setup their Facebook and LinkedIn subscriptions once more.
