What is the difference between Cram-MD5/Encrypted Password and Normal Password?
Last Updated 8 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.
