Quoth dlucio at okay.com.mx ("Luis Daniel Lucio Quiroz"):
| Well, I was wondering if someone has a successful history on setting up
| WU-IMAP 2002+ (I use 2004) with Krb auth? I have just this realms
| but then what I shall do? WU IMAP does no have enoght doc.
Shouldn't need one for this (though I guess one benefit of
more documentation might be that people would know its name
better - WU?)
The source distributions does have directions for building
with Kerberos 5. If that happened, and the key for that
imap service principal is there in /etc/krb5.keytab, the
server should support GSSAPI authentication. Apple Mail,
Pine are a couple of clients that come to mind that support
GSSAPI authentication. imapd logs to the "mail" syslog log.
There is a comp.mail.imap newsgroup, where people know more
about this software.
