Package: aeromail
Version: 1.45-1.2
Severity: important


If you install the latest version of uw-imapd in testing it creates a
self-signed SSL certificate.  When you try to login to this IMAP
server using Aeromail it tries to authenticate the certificate (even
with non-SSL connections) and fails.  But it doesn't produce *any*
output mentioning this fact, all you get is exactly the same behaviour
as if you'd entered an incorrect password.

The PHP function imap_last_error() does return a message indicating
this ("Certificate failure for localhost: self signed certificate:
/O=University of Washington IMAP
but that's not being treated any differently by Aeromail to "Can not
authenticate to IMAP server: AUTHENTICATE LOGIN failed".

It would help people track down problems if Aeromail differentiated
between error messages and/or passed them back to the user.


PS.  I mistakenly filed bug #250389 first before tracking down the
true nature of this bug.

aeromail has been removed from Debian because no one adopted it since
January 2004, and because it is unusable with the default configuration
of PHP.  ilohamail provides a lightweight alternative.  For details,
see <http://bugs.debian.org/326164>.
