Topic: Different password for Roundcube and external IMAP/SMTP

Is it possible to have the Roundcube password, and the password that's used for IMAP and SMTP connections (such as when using a mail app), be different?

I would like to do this because I've set up 2 factor auth via a plugin on round cube, but this is essentially useless for the moment. But since the Roundcube password is the same as the IMAP/SMTP password, then someone with the password could access the emails anyway through a 3rd party mail app and bypass Roundcube.

Are there any instructions available as to how this could be done?

Thank you!

No.

How about use another SQL column for your 2FA secret code/password?

Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?
