Re: more problems with imap/pop3



I've finally got a RH 5.0 system up, and used it to figure one or two
things out, 

RH 5.0 basic IMAPD is *NOT* linked with libcrypt.so.1 ??

Now I need to know is this
a) a bug -- so could someone from RH have a look ..
b) a feature -- how to I make my pam module link with it if this is true?
	Will a simple -lcrypt work ?

Dave.
