Howdy Cyrus,

Thanks for the reply.

I do have DIGEST-MD5 working with IMAP. Actually, in the 3 years I've been 
using both Cyrus IMAP and Cyrus IMSP, I've always been able to use 
DIGEST-MD5 on the IMAP connections and never on the IMSP connections.

IMAP connection with DIGEST-MD5 from the logs:
Feb 17 10:49:26 mail imap[17487]: login: [] 
wont-i at DIGEST-MD5 User logged in

The error I'm seeing in messages when I try using DIGEST-MD5 is:

Feb 17 10:44:21 mail imsp[17643]: bad digest-uri: doesn't match service
Feb 17 10:44:21 mail imsp[17643]: badlogin: - digest-md5 
authentication failure

I'm glad to hear that there is TLS code out there. I'm looking forward to 
being able to use it.

Thanks for the help,

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new
discoveries, is not "Eureka!" (I found it!) but "That's funny ..."

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then
do it.
