What is the difference between Cram-MD5/Encrypted Password and Normal Password?
Last Updated 7 years ago

Cram-MD5 or "Encrypted Password", which it sometimes is called, is more secure.


A plain text password will send whole password plain text. With Encrypted Password however, the IMAP-key never leaves the computer, only a hash sum of the key is sent, not the password itself.


We recommend using Cram-MD5 / Encrypted Password.
