(based on a chat with harlan on #postfixadmin)

If someone has a list with existing users, this list often includes already encrypted passwords.

The CLI, especially "user add", should have a switch that says "the given password is already encrypted".

(A very easy way (and workaround) would be to recommend switching $CONF[encrypt] to cleartext in the documentation/help output, but I'm not sure if this is a good idea ;-)

    Closing as wontfix - this would add too many special handling for a very small win.

    If you need this, just set $CONF['encrypt'] = 'cleartext' while creating the mailboxes with pre-encrypted passwords.
