Hi

I recently installed net-mail/fetchyahoo-2.10.5 to fetch my Yahoo mail.

In .fetchyahoorc it says:
Code:
# this can be a password or an md5_hex hashed password
password = yahoo-password


It works fine with if I just enter my password, but I don't like the idea of having my password just lay around in plain text...
So, how do I turn it into an "md5_hex hashed" password?

Thanks in advance!
