3.2.15 PAM Statement


pam {
  # Set PAM service name.
  service text;


The pam statement configures PAM authentication. It contains a single sub-statement:

Configuration: service text

Define service name to look for in PAM configuration. By default, the base name of the Mailutils binary is used.

This statement takes effect only if ‘pam’ is listed in authentication statement (see auth statement).
