I'm trying to set up any mail client to have a secure connection to Network Solutions' email servers.
I've been talking with Network Solutions' email support people, who will repeatedly state that Network Solutions email is secure, even immediately after confessing that SSL is not supported, nor is STARTTLS, nor is secure authentication for their POP3 server. Every byte sent to and from their POP3 is unencrypted and sniffable. They repeatedly call that secure.
It seems like a classic case of doublespeak.
This looks like a completely hopeless case, but I might ask: Has anyone here made any progress in getting anything better service for email out of Network Solutions?
Here's another idea to remedy this:
I understand that PHP can be used to send emails. If I were willing to write my own secure web email app in PHP, is there a way to set up a PHP script to act as a listener or callback to receive incoming emails? Maybe Network Solutions would never support such a concept anyway.
