10.4: Enable encrypted SquirrelMail on Server
Authored by: CarlosD on Jul 02, '05 12:18:03PM

I think this is a great and useful hint, though a bit misunderstood.

The point of allowing encrypted communication between SquirrelMail and the mail server is that you can now disable the non-encrypted access methods without sacrificing WebMail.

For example, I set up my company's email to require encryption for IMAP and SMTP from every client (internally and externally accessed). I wanted to further restrict access to just cram-md5, but, before this hint, I couldn't without sacrificing WebMail, so I had to leave other methods open.

Now, I expect to be able to lock down my mail server all the way as I intended and still offer all the service I intended. Thanks to the original poster! :)

10.4: Enable encrypted SquirrelMail on Server
Authored by: tknospdr on Jul 04, '05 12:42:07AM
Wouldn't it be easier to just run the cmd line config script rather than to manually change files?
sudo /private/etc/squirrelmail/config/conf.pl
