    Hello,

    I've been changing the default CPanel configuration of my mail server to remove the 250-AUTH PLAIN LOGIN option and disallow plain text authentication.

    However, the configuration seems to be reverting to default. Does anyone know how I can permanently disable the plain text authentication option in my cpanel appliance?

    thanks!

    my guys are doing it from the command line, I think. Which obviously doesn't work well because the config files get re-written after every update.

    < fixed_plain:
    < driver = plaintext
    < public_name = PLAIN
    < server_prompts = :
    < server_condition = "${perl{checkuserpass}{$1}{$2}{$3}}"
    < server_set_id = $2
    ---

    Is there a way to remove the clear-text authentication method from the management console? I think we're using exim. I was looking through the other posts on the forum, but it seems that similar methods were used. or maybe I'm not understanding...
