    haven't seen this mention often..if at all. Outlook Express has a feature that allows a user to use a secure connection (ssl).....a user can also pick the port that it wants outlook express to use...........have also noticed that the feature appears to also apply to pop 3......

    I am not sure how this actually applies to pop 3...for those who use this feature or perhaps is awaer of it....can it be used with pop 3 without any known problems....an would it be suggested to do do??

    before shuting down I thought to give this a testing....works for me.....the assigned port is 995 secure(ssl).....haven't sent any e mails...thats something I never do....so anyone wanting to test this for encryption etc will have to try it for themselfs.....an please let us know the results.....

    You may use any port and use a personal SMTP server (on localhost) and send your mail through a proxysocks for instance.

    This little trick allows you to hide you IP to the recipients : just the proxysocks IP appears and never yours.
