Description: ------------ Cyrus' timsieved daemon supports encrypted connections, but only via the START TLS mechanism as far as I can see. There are situations where only PLAIN and/or LOGIN authentication mechanisms can be used, and those require an encrypted transport layer in order to be protected. timsieved supports START TLS. Other mechanisms like DIGEST-MD5 do not need this to protect the password on the wire. So, currently there is no way to protect the password when PLAIN/LOGIN has to be used. Not even stunnel helps, because timsieved only supports START TLS which has to be initiated after the clear text connection was established.


 [2005-12-20 05:21 UTC] amistry - Fixes a regex bug that prevented STARTTLS from being correctly detected during CAPABILITY. - Adds STARTTLS support. Just connect normally unencrypted and STARTTLS will be detected and automatically enabled. It requires PHP 5.1, but should fail gracefully if you have a lower version installed.

Can you try the following patch to see if it fixes your problem? The STARTTLS support is for PHP 5.1 and above.

I'll be able to test it this weekend.

Any news? I'm planning on updating the package sometime this week so I'd like to make sure it works for you too.

Is STARTTLS support working for you? I'd like to close this bug report.

I'm terribly sorry for the delay. I *promise* I'll do it *this* weekend (25 and 26/mar/2006).

Client side certs may not work Mar 26 19:59:41 bach sieve[5635]: starttls: TLSv1 with cipher AES256-SHA (256/256 bits new) no authentication Mar 26 19:59:41 bach sieve[5635]: login: maestro.lowtech[] andreas PLAIN+TLS User logged in Thanks! P.S.: this was tested with version 1.1.1 of the module plus the patch applied.
