    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.....

    Hello,

    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.

    Rgds,
