still insecure without SSL
Authored by: Anonymous on Jan 18, '06 09:01:23AM

I use ssl on dot mac. Port 587 supports this and i use imap secure on port 993

I presume POP will have a secure option i think port 995 ??

I would urge people to use this service then removes a chance of your dotmac password becoming compromised.

In the old days you would have to pay for SSL now it come as standard with good ISP's

still insecure without SSL

awesome, that did not used to be the case. Does .Mac mail still require you to send "from" your e-mail address? I guess I could try it... I have about 20 different "from" addresses with the various jobs and organizations I am involved in. They all filter into 2 Gmail accounts for the excellent spam filtering. Between them, there are over 103,000 junk mails in the Spam folders from the past 30 days.

Anyway, with Comcast SSL SMTP, I can use any "from" address I like. Gmail changes it to Gmail, and .Mac used to just stop it from going out. Again, wonder if that's still the case-- will check it tonight.

Thanks for the tip...
