    Dovecot use Cpanel mail accounts

    Where can I find informtion on the email account password encryption used by cpanel?
    I know the passwords are stored in /home/account/etc/domain/shadow (account names in passwd)

    I am trying to get Dovecot (all POP no imap) to authenticate against the names/password created by Cpanel

    The Cpanel/Courier config seems to use courier-auth (/usr/local/cpanel/bin/courier-auth) to do the authenication but I can't find what standards are employed nor the source for the program.

    Dovecot reads the account names but fails to authenticate.
