Hey all,

Just did a fresh install and I cannot enable the imap 2004g option in build apache? During the compile I get this error:

make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/local/cpanel/src/3rdparty/bsd/imap-2004g'
make sslnone
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/local/cpanel/src/3rdparty/bsd/imap-2004g'
+ Building in NON-COMPLIANCE with RFC 3501 security requirements:
+ Non-compliant:
++ TLS/SSL encryption is NOT supported
++ Unencrypted plaintext passwords are permitted
+ In order to rectify this problem, you MUST build with:
++ SSLTYPE=nopwd
+ You must also have OpenSSL or equivalent installed.


Anyone ever see this?

During the compile I get this error:
The script will stop there and ask if you want to continue or not (y/n).
No real bug at first sight. But the imap extension is alway good for some kind of trouble ;-)

If you choose yes the process will continue. As far as I can tell the TLS/SSL is working afterwards. But since "Unencrypted plaintext passwords are permitted" the script will yell "Non-compliant". Perhaps we will get a few more options about that here.
