Yes, the config is taken from the SOGo configuration guide, which can be 
seen here:

Yes, but we have args = nopassword=y allow_nets=
so it should only allow passwordless logins from localhost, right..?

And in "Debug: static(username,,<g2/rF+ZnjAAu5ceg>): Allowing any 
password" is NOT localhost...

(obviously is not the *real* ip, bit it's a *real* ip from the 
internet, NOT localhost...
