    hello,

    i have a big problem, i updated plesk via the updater 2 days ago and i think in this update qmail was updated´.

    since the update CRAM-MD5 authentication via smtp wont work.

    login via telnet on port 25 says:

    220 XXXX.com ESMTP
    EHLO test
    250-XXXX.com
    250-AUTH LOGIN CRAM-MD5 PLAIN
    250-AUTH=LOGIN CRAM-MD5 PLAIN
    250-STARTTLS
    250-PIPELINING
    250 8BITMIME
    AUTH CRAM-MD5
    334 PDE3NzYyLjEwNjk5Mzc3MTNAbG9jYWxob3N0Pg==


    all mail-client i use say when i send a mail "authentication failiure" only when i use cram-md5, because i think its more safe. plain there iss no problem.

    so i used the CRAM-MD5 authentication tester from http://www.net-track.ch/opensource/cmd5/ and generated the md5 hash and its a other then i find in the file called /var/qmail/user/passwd.

    if i try to login with the md5 hash from /var/qmail/user/passwd (i used copy & paste) i have no problems and he says "mailformed input". so it seems to work.

    but why are in /var/qmail/user/passwd other md5 hashs?
    .. i think this is the problem, the different hashs.

    has anybody a solutions?

    sorry for my bad english. ;-)

    BTW: i used plesk 8 on a SuSE 9.3 -64 edition

    Hi all,

    i still have the same problem.
    Yet in my case it only concerns several domains...

    I would be glad for a solution

    the only solution i found was to use smtp after pop - IMHO you can only use cram -md5 if you have a passwd file in plain text, but its encoded and so its in my opinion impossible to use cram-md5.
