SirAdmin is a ver cool GUI tool to manage IMAP mailboxes.

It has one problem though.
In order to get it to work, you have to enable clear password authentication on the mail server.

Using Server Admin go to


Here you have to enable 'Clear' in the IMAP column, otherwise SirAdmin will not be able to authenticate

Tip found here.

you shouldn't have had to enable clear text.

I'm pretty sure I wrote a CRAM-MD5 auth mechanism, in fact I'm positive I wrote a non-clear text mechanism as when I wrote this I'd disabled clear text auth on my OD accounts and server :)
