Mail address in HTTP Header affected by TLS security option?

[ Edited ]

Dear all,


as described in this support topic, it is possible to add a device user's mail address to the HTTP header of a request in order to use this information for authentication puposes. Does this solution work with both TLS options, "handheld" and "proxy" (configurable in Options -> Security Options -> TLS)? We will most likely use the "Handheld" setting, meaning that our HTTPS connection is "tunneled" through the BES. Would this affect the adding of the mail information to the HTTP header?


Thanks for your help and best regards,
