In Mac OS X Panther, the security authentication sheme changed and PAM authentication was added. Since IMAP is, by default, compiled without password type PAM, we just need to change it to PAM in the source. It is done by editing the file Makefile in the source. Change the password type to PASSWDTYPE=pam before you type make osx. You need to create a symlink befor you type make osx, too:
% cd /usr/include/ % sudo ln -s pam securityNow you need to setup PAM authentication for IMAP; simply type:
% sudo cp /etc/pam.d/ftpd /etc/pam.d/imapAnd if you want to use POP3, too, do this:
% sudo cp /etc/pam.d/ftpd /etc/pam.d/pop3Now, you can type:
% make osx SSLTYPE=unix SSLDIR=/usr SSLCERTS=/System/Library/OpenSSL/certsand continue with the original hint's instructions.
