Create a login Token for testmailbox@testapidomain.net


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<rsMailboxLoginToken xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" 
xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns="urn:xml:rsMailboxLoginToken">

  <token>5b5e27419a363fc5b65bbb63d1c2d3f8</token>

  <dateCreated>9/22/2010 9:33:15 AM</dateCreated>

  <expirationDate>9/22/2010 9:53:14 AM</expirationDate>

</rsMailboxLoginToken>


The login token is valid until the current time (EST) passes the expiration date, and can be used until that point.

Using the above created login token a user can SSO into testmailbox@testapidomain.net using the following URL:

https://{webmail address}/mail/src/redirect.php?user_name={testmailbox@testapidomain.net}&emailaddress=testmailbox@testapidomain.net&sessionID=5b5e27419a363fc5b65bbb63d1c2d3f8
