I have what might be a problem or a config error on my part using
.authinfo.gpg and IMAP.
my log after setting (setq auth-source-debug t) is
| imap: Connecting to imap.mymailserver.net...
| imap: Opening SSL connection with `openssl s_client -quiet -ssl3 -connect
| Waiting for response from imap.mymailserver.net...done
| imap: Authenticating to `imap.mymailserver.net' using `login'...
| imap: Plaintext authentication...
| Store password for this session? (y or n)
| imap: Authenticating to `imap.mymailserver.net' using `login'...done
My IMAP gnus select code is :
| gnus-select-method '(nnimap "mymail"
| (nnimap-stream ssl)
| (nnimap-address "imap.mymailserver.net")
| (nnimap-expunge-on-close always)
| (nnimap-nov-is-evil t)
| (nnir-search-engine imap))
it correctly launches my pinetry or uses the gpg-agent cache.
The nntp select methods work fine with auth and .authinfo.gpg with the
nttp-authinfo line removed e.g
| (add-to-list 'gnus-secondary-select-methods
| '(nntp "motzarella"
| ;; (nntp-authinfo-file "~/.authinfo.gpg")
| (nntp-address "news.eternal-september.org")
| (nntp-port-number 119)
And finally the auth is setup using:
| (require 'auth-source)
| (require 'epa-file)
| (setq epa-file-cache-passphrase-for-symmetric-encryption t) ;;VERY Important
| (if (file-exists-p "~/.authinfo.gpg")
| (setq auth-sources '((:source "~/.authinfo.gpg" :host t :protocol t)))
| (setq auth-sources '((:source "~/.authinfo" :host t :protocol t))))
is it a config error on my part?
