Also, I'm fairly certain that CRAM-MD5 requires that you have clear-text passwords enabled. I still need to look at my pop and smtp servers to see how I can make them not advertise something that's not available on my system...

Good point (clear-text).

The change is pretty easy -- just modify qmail-smtpd.c. Search for a line like "250-AUTH LOGIN CRAM-MD5 PLAIN" and remove the "CRAM-MD5" part.

Cool. I really like Bill's patch. That plus all the work Antonio's been doing on chkuser and we're one step closer to having a "vpopmail patch for netqmail". Now if one day that were bundled in with vpopmail in a way where we ended up with an integrated mail "system"... mmmmm... One of the things having an official patchset would do would be to alter our patching of qmail to take into account all the vpopmail configure options (ie: patch qmail intelligently so that CRAM-MD5 isn't offered if clear-text passwords are not enabled in vpopmail).

Just thinking out loud, but it seems like something that might be worth looking at down the line - it would probably reduce some common questions on this list and make supporting the casual user a bit easier...
