Problem

A user sends and encrypted mail to an unknown "external" address and uses the extra PIN functionality. The recipient does not see the extra PIN, only a password which he does not yet know. This is confusing for the end user.

The issue arrises when when the user is not assigned a password, but a PIN was applied. To reproduce, make sure the following settings are applied:


guard-core.properties:


com.openexchange.guard.newGuestsRequirePassword=false


guard-api.properties:


com.openexchange.capability.guard-pin=true

Workaround #1

Send the encrypted mail, but do not use the extra PIN functionality. In this case, the guest receives the encrypted message with a link to the temporary account. After following this link, the user is recognized as a new guest and can set his own password.

Workaround #2

If com.openexchange.guard.newGuestRequirePassword=true then the user will have a password available, and will then be prompted for a pin.


guard-core.properties:

com.openexchange.guard.newGuestsRequirePassword=true

guard-api.properties:

com.openexchange.capability.guard-pin=true


(warning) (warning) Remember to restart your OXApp Server to allow the changes to take place.
