  • It's dead-simple to set up a tunnel to do this. Not quite as convenient as automatic SSL, mind, but it's doable. (It is, in fact, what I use on my OS X box)

    You can use stunnel if you don't have shell access to the machine your mail's on, or you can use ssh if you do have shell access there. For example:

        ssh -L143:mail.host:143 -L25:mail.host:25 me@mail.host

    will log you on to mail.host, and also set up local ports 143 (IMAP) and 25 (SMTP) to automatically forward to ports 143 and 25 on the
    • This took some doing ... I got fink to install stunnel no problem, but it wasn't working. I finally realized that Eudora under Mac OS X was still set to check SSL, and I could only turn it off by launching Eudora in Classic (it was greyed out!). So now I just have two "Personalities" in Eudora, one for accessing work IMAP while in Classic (directly) and one for Mac OS X (via stunnel). Sigh. :)

      Thanks for the tip, that end is working well.
