Summary: bug, passwords with trailing blanks have the trailing
blanks removed before the username/password is encoded for
The account has a password of 'testme '. I took the following ethereal
OK <hostname> Mirapoint IMAP4 3.7.1-GA server ready
* CAPABILITY IMAP4 IMAP4rev1 ACL QUOTA LITERAL+ NAMESPACE UIDPLUS IDLE AUTH=PLAIN UNSELECT
00000000 OK Completed
00000001 AUTHENTICATE PLAIN
00000001 NO Login incorrect
00000002 AUTHENTICATE PLAIN
00000002 NO Login incorrect
00000003 AUTHENTICATE PLAIN
The first password is wrong, but I just wanted to see blanks:
[mike at crackerjack ~]$ ./64 AG1pa2UxAHRlc3QgbWU=
The second decodes as:
[mike at crackerjack ~]$ ./64 AG1pa2UxAHRlc3RtZQ==
You'll have to trust me that I did type 'testme ' for the password.
Connected to <hostname> (<IP>).
Escape character is '^]'.
* OK <hostname> Mirapoint IMAP4 3.7.1-GA server ready
f authenticate plain
f OK User logged in
mike at crackerjack ~]$ ./64 AG1pa2UxAHRlc3RtZSA=
So, indeed the password is 'testme ', and the imap server does
