no support for stronger authentification mechanism like cram-md5

It would be good if the mailwatch plugin supported auth mechanisms like cram-md5 and the like.
Besides my mailserver will not allow a connection unless authenticated using cram-md5 it would be good for everyone else too, to have strong auth mechanisms supported.

Reproducible: Always

Do you run this mailserver yourself?  I've written some code that I think should work, but none of my email accounts are on a server that supports cram-md5.  If you run such a server and could create a test account for me, that would help a lot!

Alternatively, you can try this patch yourself.  Note that you have to compile mailwatch with gnutls support for it to work.

thank you for providing this patch, I am tight on time right for the next two weeks and since I am not running the server I cannot create an account for you.

But gmx.com offers a free mailbox that supports ssl and cram-md5. Maybe this is an option to test your code?

Ah, cool.  Looks like it works with gmx.com, so I've pushed this to svn trunk.
