Thoughts about security.

    There are four aspects of security to consider:
  1. The sending of your name and password (logging in).
  2. The transfer of message and page contents between networks.
  3. Backend and Administrative functions.
  4. The contents of messages outside of our control.
    A little background on Internet Protocols:
  1. SMTP (outgoing on port 25). SMTP is not encrypted in any aspect.
  2. SMTPS (outgoing on port 465 with SSLv3). SMTPS encrypts authentication and message in transit.
  3. Submission (outgoing on port 587) is not encrypted in any aspect.
  4. POP3 (incomining on port 110) . POP3 is not encrypted in any aspect.
  5. POP3s (incoming on port 995 with SSLv3). POP3s encrypts authentication and message in transit.
  6. IMAP (access messages on port 143). IMAP is not encrypted in any aspect.
  7. IMAPs (access messages on port 993 with SSLv3). IMAPs encrypts authentication and content.
  8. Web (HTTP client). No encryption.
  9. Secure Web (HTTPs). Everything is encrypted.
