Response to: mail.mac.com does not support SSL

Hmm. After reading your note I tried another test mailfetch from my (otherwise unused) mac.com mail account, and observed that, after connecting, the "Use SSL" checkbox stays checked, but the port number goes back to 143, the ordinary IMAP4 default. It's unclear exactly what's going on, here.


It does seems rather cheeky of them, doesn't it... OTOH, if you use iTools account for anything else, your password for it probably gets sent in the raw for these other activities.


Thanks for the note.
