Secure Mail Reading on Mac OS X
Subject:   POP/SSL times out

I run a secure mail server and have succesfully configured Outlook Express running on a Win32 box to connect to it and retrieve mail securely.

I recently bought an iBook and so far have been unable to retrieve mail using POP over SSL. I enabled the SSL option and set the port to the port I use (non-standard).

Using tcpdump, i can see the connection attempt succeed, but after the three-way tcp handshake, the Mail client never sends any more data, and eventually times out.

I am wondering if anyone else has had this problem and might be able to recommend a solution? I am running the most recent update of Jaguar (10.2.x).
