Jump to: navigation, search


If the plaintextmincipher option is > 0 for a service, then disable use of plaintext passwords over that service unless a security layer (SSL or TLS) is activated for the selected service. This forces users to enable SSL or TLS on their client to login which prevents exposure of their passwords on the network.

Use with the IMAP proxy

If the plaintextmincipher option under imapproxy or popproxy is > 0, then disable use of plaintext passwords over the respective service unless a security layer (SSL or TLS) is activated for the selected service. This forces users to enable SSL or TLS on their client to login which prevents exposure of their passwords on the network.
