Separate Passwords for IMAP & SMTP

1015495 shared this idea 38 days ago


While I use 2FA for logging into webmail, it concerns me that I have to use my main account password to access IMAP / SMTP on 3rd party clients. Another email provider I have used has an option to generate specific passwords that are used for IMAP and SMTP server acccess respectively, keeping 3rd party access a little bit more secure.

I would like to see mailbox.org integrate this option - have a separate password you can generate for IMAP access or SMTP access only, so that you don't have to use your main password to access the servers from 3rd party clients.

Thank you.
