I have set up dovecot server and I'm currently using offline imap to sync my gmail to the dovecot imap running on the localhost.
Currently I'm using plain text authentication, but this results in every single mail client to ask & remember my user name password just to access mail from localhost.
Is there a way to set up dovecot such that it will not ask me for authentication when I'm trying to log in to it from gnus from localhost for example? Or make it ask pam/gnomekeyring/anything to not ask me?
ps. there are no plans to allow accessing dovecot server not from localhost. Not even from local network.
