I have recently started using mutt to access my email account via IMAP.
My IMAP connection settings are as follows:
set ssl_starttls = yes set ssl_force_tls = yes set imap_user = "[email protected]" set smtp_url = "smtp://[email protected]@smtp.domain.tld:[port]/" set folder = "imaps://imap.domain.tld:[port]" set hostname = domain.tld
I have not stored my password so I have to type in my password every time I login
When I start mutt I see the following on the bottom line:
SSL/TLS connection using TLS1.2 (<some string of letters and numbers>)
When I type in my password on being prompted I see the following in the bottom line of my mutt window:
Does this mean that mutt is transmitting my password in plaintext?
Thank you for your help.
