Subject: libc-client2002ddebian: Problem enabling plain text passwords.
Date: Wed, 14 Jan 2004 09:18:24 -0600
Package: libc-client2002ddebian
Version: 7:2002ddebian1-4
Severity: normal

Ran dpkg-reconfigure -plow libc-client2002ddebian

First off it did not create the /etc/ file
I did touch /etc/
running again put in only the "I accept the risk" part

I added the rest myself for:
I accept the risk
set disable-plaintext nil

I checked the source to figure out what it needed.
It works now.

 uw-imap (7:2002edebian1-2) unstable; urgency=low
   * Change order of po2debconf and local version hack, for the packaging
     l12n to look more sane from the outside. Closes: Bug#235172, thanks
     to Martin Quinson <>.
   * Correctly check for a debconf response of "true" (not "yes") to the
     question of enabling plaintext passwords. Closes: Bug#227709,
     231115 (thanks to John McMonagle <> and Stefan
     Andersson <>).
   * The above also closes: Bug#190727 (thanks to Ryan Sinn
     <>). In fact it only resolves the problem mentioned
     last - the main part is unreproducible and not due to purging the
     replaced package as I first suspected).
   * Recommend exim4 instead of exim. Closes: Bug# 228566 (thanks to Marc
     Haber <>).
