Perl, Imap and Kerberos
 
Hi all,

I am currently writing an IMAP client script in perl.

Since this script will only be used in one single use case and the IMAP
server supports Kerberos authentication, I thought it would be a good
idea to use Mail::ImapClient together with Authen:SASL

This works well until I want to really something, since the kerberos
protocoll implements some encryption of every message and Authen::SASL
does not support more than authentication.

Any ideas how one would implement the en/decryption using perl?

Mail::ImapClient brings some callbacks for this task, so I'd need a
decent kerberos interface.

regards

Christoph

Just for the archives: This had nothing to do with kerberos, but GSSAPI
which by default (at least in perls implementation) uses privacy
protection.
This can be turned off by setting the maxssf property to 0 in the GSSAPI
object. (Apparently this privacy protection is not implemented in perl).
