           Summary: kerberos ticket-based IMAP logins
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.8.0
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P3
         Component: Other
        AssignedTo: users at lists.claws-mail.org
        ReportedBy: aelschuring at hotmail.com

>From discussion on IRC, I have understood that claws-mail currently does not
support Kerberos ticket-based authentication (that is, use the user's TGT to
request an imap/ service ticket).

Indeed, when I try to force GSSAPI while having a valid krbtgt, claws doesn't
appear to try and an fetch imap/ ticket, it just errors out and dovecot says
"Aborted login (no auth attempts)". Mutt appears to work fine: it logs in and
afterwards klist shows me it now has imap/ auth tokens. But even with those
tokens present, claws does not use them.

Filing this as wishlist bug. However, the language in Bug1679 seems to suggest
that ticket-based logins used to be possible?
