10.3: Using UW IMAP and SSL
Authored by: j.marques on Oct 30, '03 03:49:57AM

Another option is to create a file called cram-md5.pwd in /etc. Each line of this file contains a userid, a tab (this is important, if you use an editor that converts tabs to spaces then this file will not work) and a plain text password (which should be different to the normal login password). The file should be readable only by root. If this file exists and is in the correct format then UW IMAP will use the password information in this file instead of the system password.
