From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; YComp

Description of problem:
Latest RawHide imap-2002b-5 doesn't allow "LOGIN" authentication method by 
default. This breaks SquirrleMail since it relies on plaintext LOGIN method. 
SquirrelMail at present only supports using stunnel for IMAPS implementation.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Squirrlemail 1.2.10-4
2. Install imap-2002b-5
3. Login to imap server via Squirrlemail.

Actual Results:  Login rejected - Squirrlemail doesn't support STARTTLS or 
alternate Plaintext Login methods

Expected Results:  Successful login.

Additional info:

Changing IMAP to use SSLTYPE=unix instead of SSLTYPE=unix.nopwd via spec fixes 
the issue (but breaks IESG security requirement of disabling plaintext w/o 

Filing here because the imap change is "better" as long as SquirrelMail is 
capable of using STARTTLS or an alternate login method.

Comment 1 Rick Johnson 2003-04-03 22:47:35 UTC
Squirrelmail 1.4.0 when combined with PHP 4.3.0 or higher will support TLS
