Email Via Ssl

Is it possible to set up standard email (POP/SMTP) using SSL? My concern is using public WiFi while on the road. Gmail now uses this method. I tried to find something about this in various forums, but had no luck. Am I barking up the wrong tree?

I changed to these ports and checked the SSL box for each.

 

I got a warning message: The server you are connected to is using a security certificate that could not be verified. The certificate's CN name does not match the passed value.

 

Is this because we are using a TCH (generic) SSL cert for all domains? Seems I remember this in a discussion some time ago.

 

If this cool, hopefully I'll only have to click OK once (or once per session.)

 

Otherwise seems to work fine. Thanks for your help.

In Thunderbird you will only need to save it once and it will be remembered. How it is in other email clients (like Outlook etc) I don´t know but would assume it´s the same.
