According to:


The four strongest encryption schemes recommended are: BLF-CRYPT, SHA512-CRYPT, SHA256-CRYPT & MD5-CRYPT.

I'd like to manage my Dovecot mysql database directly with phpmyadmin. When insert records I can see a number of functions available like PASSWORD, MD5, ENCRYPT, etc, with no detailed explanation and none of the above listed encryption schemes.

Is there a way to add SHA512-CRYPT records directly from within phpmyadmin without going to terminal and using the doveadm utility to generate them?
