Encrypt POP without APOP? Is SSL supported?

Post by tad_braun » Wed Apr 21, 2004 5:09 pm

Hello,

Outlook 2000 doesn't do APOP, so we are asking if ME Pro will support SSL? Some of the articles I have found so far on ME's web site say no, but I'd love to hear it from someone associated with ME. Any help?

Hi,

This link to the knowledge base article might clear few things up.

I'd also like to know when Secure Sockets (TLS) will be supported for POP3 retrieval. I view it as an extremely important feature especially with lots of public hotspots being unencrypted (even the commercial ones).

Anyone from the ME team care to comment on this?

This is not exactly what has been asked in this thread. I was specifically asking for POP3S support in MailEnable.

Stunnel (http://www.stunnel.org) works with MailEnable and will allow POP/SMTP/IMAP over SSL.

TLS in Eudora seems no problem, is the stunnel setup for ME documented somewhere? (no KB found)

I'd also be really interested in secuing my SMTP and POP3 streams but don't see anything in any MailEnable documentation about it.

MailEnable does not natively support SSL, but will integrate with stunnel to (which acts as an SSL proxy to MailEnable services). The integration of STunnel is quite independant of MailEnable.

The basic approach for installing and configuring stunnel follows:

1) Download and install the stunnel program from http://www.stunnel.org.

2) You need to configure a stunnel.conf configuration file. Configure the inbound ports for SSL.

Example:

Code: Select all

cert=mailenable.pem
debug=5
output=stunnel.log

[pop3]
accept=995
connect=110

[smtp]
accept=465
connect=25
3) Create a certificate (this is the complicated part - where you will need to consult the stunnel documenation).
