No, it only supports native Alm and optional Ldap authentication.

I have raised an enhancement request with HP to implement a generic single signon solution that uses your domain login credentials, similar to other products such as PPM.

ALM 11 does support smtp authentication. Under site admin, set SMTP_AUTHENTICATION to 'Y'. Then choose settings > set mail protocol.

 

It is not without issues - eg. it issues a warning every 10 minutes (if email is enabled for a project), warning that no from email address is set for a project.
