    My PCI scan is coming back with "Mail Server Accepts Plaintext Credentials" for ports 25 and 587.

    I found in this forum a solution for Dovecot (Im on Courier) to solve this issue, simply select the following:

    When I do this, I get sending failures and my mail log gets flooded with the following error:

    Code:
    imapd-ssl: NOTICE: Disconnected during shutdown by signal,
    Any suggestions on how to remedy this issue.

    Thanks in Advance

    Hello :)

    Could you elaborate further on the specific sending failure messages you receive? Are you connecting to the mail server with SSL?

    Thank you.

    Ok, so this is 2 different issues when I select

    Issue #1:

    Immediately after i turn it on, the mail log gets flooded with

    Code:
    imapd-ssl: NOTICE: Disconnected during shutdown by signal,
    
    Issue #2

    Email Scripts on the server using smtpauth fail. They are set to use the SSL settings. Hostname and port 465.

    Thanks

    Could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look? You can post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you.

    Are you able to switch to Dovecot, or is there something in particular that's keeping you on Courier?

    Thank you.
