Directives#

pop3_auth#

Syntax:

pop3_auth method …;

Default:

ipop3_auth plain;

Context:

mail, server

Sets permitted methods of authentication for POP3 clients. Supported methods are:

plain

USER/PASS, AUTH PLAIN, AUTH LOGIN

apop

APOP. In order for this method to work, the password must be stored unencrypted.

cram-md5

AUTH=CRAM-MD5. In order for this method to work, the password must be stored unencrypted.

external

AUTH=EXTERNAL

Plain text authentication methods (USER/PASS, AUTH PLAIN and AUTH LOGIN) are always enabled, though if the plain method is not specified, AUTH PLAIN and AUTH LOGIN will not be automatically included in pop3_capabilities.

pop3_capabilities#

Syntax:

pop3_capabilities extension …;

Default:

pop3_capabilities TOP USER UIDL;

Context:

mail, server

Sets the POP3 protocol extensions list that is passed to the client in response to the CAPA command. The authentication methods specified in the pop3_auth directive (SASL extension) and STLS are automatically added to this list depending on the starttls directive value.

It makes sense to specify the extensions supported by the POP3 backends to which the clients are proxied (if these extensions are related to commands used after the authentication, when Angie PRO transparently proxies the client connection to the backend).
