Alexei Osipov updated JAMES-1723:
    Comment: was deleted

(was: I use James 3.x (built from sources) and I can see IP of an attacker in logs. It's just
sad I can't do anything with that using built-in tools that James has.)

>                 Key: JAMES-1723
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-1723
>             Project: James Server
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>    Affects Versions: Trunk, 3.0-beta4, 3.0.0-beta5
>            Reporter: Alexei Osipov
> Right now James has no mechanisms of protection against password forcing.
> For example, it's possible to connect to James via SMTP and execute AUTH command as many
times as needed to guess user's password.
> Common practices that may be used by James:
> 1) Force disconnect after few unsuccessful AUTH requests.
> 2) Count failed AUTH requests by IP address and reject connections from that IP if number
of failures reached some threshold.
