[suse-security] Cyrus Mailserver POP3 /IMAP secure password authentication



Hi to all, 

I'm using a Suse 9.1 OS, I have setup a Postfix + Cyrus mailserver. Everything runs well, I can connect with pop3 and imap, also with SSL(pop3s and imapds). 

Now, out clients are mailny windows based systems. 

I want to know how I have to setup cyrus to make the "log in using secure password authentication" available. I want only that the password is sent secure and not the whole pop3 connection. 

I succeded authentication with the smtp connection but not with the pop3 connection. When I try to connect from Outlook express I receive the following error:

Unable to logon to the server using Secure Password Authentication. Account: 'Andy makla', Server: '192.168.0.17', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '.', Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Error Number: 0x800CCC18

In the logs I find only this:
Sep 30 03:51:36 makla master[8867]: about to exec /usr/lib/cyrus/bin/pop3d
Sep 30 03:51:36 makla pop3[8867]: executed
Sep 30 03:51:36 makla pop3[8867]: accepted connection
Sep 30 03:51:36 makla master[8536]: process 8867 exited, status 0 


Hope you can help. 

Best regards.
Andy.
