in order to increase security when using web-based mail clients, would
be possible (and feasible) to mask account name/password combinations
when accessing the IMAP server. Using some sort of account separation
translation map, so that accounts on the IMAP server (UW IMAP using PAM
are not visible when accessing mail through squirrel.
user "abc" with password "1234" can authentication through squirrel,
the real access to IMAP server is done as user "xyz" with password
translation transparently done by some squirrel plug-in.
This implies that squirrel/apache run on a diffent machine (possible
than IMAP (most often within the intranet).
We would like to separate accounts that have access from within the
accounts that have access from squirrel.
Does anyone ever tried something like this?

What I do in this case is access Squirrel through SSL.
