The auth-digest-md5 configuration variable

auth-digest-md5 controls whether Archiveopteryx offers DIGEST-MD5 authentication. SASL authentication is available for IMAP, POP, SMTP, LMTP and SMTP/Submit.

We suggest setting auth-digest-md5 to false. The specification is not good, the implementations frequently do not work well together. The IETF is declaring it obsolete.

auth-digest-md5 is a toggle. Its default value is false:

auth-digest-md5 = false

You can see its current value with the command aox show cf auth-digest-md5.

Toggle syntax

Toggles are written as a single word. Yes, true, on, 1, and enabled all mean that the toggle is enabled, while no, false, off, 0, and disabled unsurprisingly mean disabled. Toggles are case-insensitive.

Spaces are allowed at the start of the line, before and after '=', and after the value. Comments extend from '#' to the end of the line.
