Plain-text password? Hmm.
Authored by: Phoenix1701 on Apr 24, '02 08:53:04PM

Is there any way around having the mail password stored in plain text? I realize the file's owned by root and not readable by anyone else, but that's only good as long as no one's looking over my shoulder. I find it hard to believe that fetchmail would have users just dump their passwords into a text file...

I think there's a reference to this in the man pages for fetchmail.
