3.59. <AuthBy IMAP> Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

This clause authenticates from an IMAP server. It requires the Mail::IMAPClient Perl module version 2.2.5 or better. It is part of CPAN. For more information, see Section 2.1.2. CPAN. There is an example configuration file in goodies/imap.cfg. <AuthBy IMAP> was mostly contributed by Karl Gaissmaier.
<AuthBy IMAP> can support SSL or non-SSL connections to the IMAP server. Use of SSL connections requires IO::Socket::SSL from CPAN and OpenSSL. For more information about CPAN, see Section 2.1.2. CPAN.
<AuthBy IMAP> only supports PAP authentication in incoming RADIUS requests. CHAP and MS-CHAP are not supported, since the plaintext password is not available within Radiator.
<AuthBy IMAP> understands also the same parameters as <AuthBy xxxxxx>. For more information, see Section 3.28. <AuthBy xxxxxx>.
