Wondering if anyone has seen this before, where on Exim 4.85 an email password fails because it had an & in it?
As you can imagine it took ages to get to the bottom of what was going on. Kept resetting customer's password, it kept failing.
Then I had an idea and put a pretty simple password and it succeeded. So went back to the original password which was something like Jumpy05#&* and working with the customer logging into webmail, started building the password
Jumpy05 - worked
Jumpy05# - worked
Jumpy05#& - failed!
Aha!!! Talk about obscure.
But the important question is why? Anyone seen this before? Is there a setting somewhere to override this?
I suspect it has something to do with & being part of querystrings, but am not sure. Ideas or solutions welcome.
