3.56. <AuthBy POP3> Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

This clause authenticates from a POP3 server, according to RFC1939. It requires the Mail::POP3Client Perl module version 2.9 or better. It is part of CPAN. For more information, see Section 2.1.2. CPAN. It supports both plaintext and APOP authentication in the POP server. There is an example configuration file in goodies/pop3.cfg. <AuthBy POP3> was mostly contributed by Karl Gaissmaier.
<AuthBy POP3> can support SSL or non-SSL connections to the POP3 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 POP3> 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 POP3> understands also the same parameters as <AuthBy xxxxxx>. For more information, see Section 3.26. <AuthBy xxxxxx>.
