hello dovecot community,

question; if my user database and dovecot installation is currently setup to use plain login passwords, and i want to convert to cram-md5, after i configure dovecot accordingly and reset passwords into cram-md5, if anyone uses plain login method again in the future, will it still work? or must they always from this point on use encrypted passwords? Thanks.
