try the login command, see the documentation for the module.

Otherwise, if you don't use the shell interactivly, why not use Cyrus::IMAP::Admin and do the full monty directly in perl?

use Cyrus::IMAP::Admin; # # assuming all necessary variables have been declared and filled accor +dingly: # my $client = Cyrus::IMAP::Admin->new($host); my $auth = { -mechanism => 'login', -service => 'imap', -authz => $admin, -user => $admin, -minssf => 0, -maxssf => 10000, -password => $admin_pass, }; $client->authenticate( \%$auth); (print $client->{error} && return(1)) if $client->{error}; # e.g. create a new mailbox: $client->createmailbox('user.' . $mailuser);

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
