I have another idea, that besides could apply to other commands.
I suggest the following parameter:
disablecapabilities: [ COMPRESS SASL STARTTLS ]
This way, the news admin can disable at run time the COMPRESS, AUTHINFO
SASL and STARTTLS commands. We currently cannot do that.
If INN is built with SASL or SSL support but the news admin does not
want it (or still has not configured SASL or SSL), he should be able to
The "disablecapabilities" inn.conf parameter would permit to do that.
Any comments are welcome if you have yet another idea to achieve that.
