Each form-based SSO works a little differently. There are often  
additional form parameters that need to be sent. Sometimes there is  
Javascript involved, or tokens from HTTP headers. Jetspeed does  
provide configuration for handling additional form parameters,  
including tokens. However  the Jetspeed SSO solution doesn't work in  
every case. We are still actively developing in the trunk and adding  
sites as we progress. We have recently authenticated against JIRA. I  
think it would be interesting to try the major mail providers. If you  
want to try that out yourself, or create a JIRA issue for it, we can  
try to get to it before the next release.
