Crypt::Imail - encrypt and decrypt IMail passwords
$im = Crypt::Imail->new();
my $encrypted_pass = $im->encrypt($user, $password);
my $password = $im->decrypt($user, $encrypted_pass);
Used to Encrypt and Decrypt passwords generated by imail.
This package is used to encrypt and decrypt passwords generated by IMail.
This came about because I kept reading newsgroup posts about how horrible IMails encryption scheme was. Then one day I get a call that a friend needs to move all the email accounts from and NT box running imail to linux and wants to have as little disruption as possible to everyone's services. So I wrote this object for him. I hope two things come out of it. First, I hope this proves helpful to others. Secondly, I hope it doesn't because Imail got their act together and fixed their "encryption" scheme.
None by default.
