NAME ^

Authen::Simple::IMAP - Simple IMAP and IMAPS authentication

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Authen::Simple::IMAP;

    my $imap = Authen::Simple::IMAP->new(
        host => 'imap.example.com',
        protocol => 'IMAPS',
    );

    if ( $imap->authenticate( $username, $password ) ) {
           # successful authentication
    }

     # or as a mod_perl Authen handler

     PerlModule Authen::Simple::Apache
     PerlModule Authen::Simple::IMAP

    PerlSetVar AuthenSimplePAM_host     "imap.example.com"
    PerlSetVar AuthenSimplePAM_protocol "IMAPS"

     <Location /protected>
         PerlAuthenHandler Authen::Simple::IMAP
         AuthType          Basic
         AuthName          "Protected Area"
         Require           valid-user
    </Location>

DESCRIPTION ^

Authenticate against IMAP or IMAPS services.

Requires Net::IMAP::Simple for IMAP and Net::IMAP::Simple::SSL for IMAPS. These modules are loaded when the object is created, not at compile time.

METHODS ^

DEPENDENCIES ^

Net::IMAP::Simple is required, and Net::IMAP::Simple::SSL is required for IMAPS. Net::IMAP::Simple::Plus adds some patches to the otherwise abandoned and broken Net::IMAP::Simple, so I recommend it.
