### Password Storage
The passwords for mail users are stored on disk using the [SHA512-CRYPT](http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man3/crypt.3.html) hashing scheme. ([source](management/mailconfig.py))
When using the web-based administrative control panel, after logging in an API key is placed in the browser's local storage (rather than, say, the user's actual password).
