Patch to fix above.

Balsas libnetclient/net-client-pop.c never adds NET_CLIENT_POP_AUTH_USER_PASS to the list of authorisation methods as qmail does not support the CAPA command.
The response to the CAPA is command is "-ERR Authorizaion First"

Patch attached. Its probably ugly but it works for POP3 and POP3S.

can you report this to upstream too?

Comment 2 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2020-08-24 07:50:07 UTC
Is this still relevant with balsa-2.6.1? If so, what is the upstream issue report link?
Comment 3 Rolf Eike Beer archtester 2021-03-25 18:43:16 UTC
Seriously, noone should use qmail-pop3d.
