EnGarde Secure Professional provides two methods of retrieving your e-mail remotely, secure IMAP and secure POP3. Both protocols have been secured using SSL and both require clients that support SSL secured IMAP and secured POP3.
Securing IMAP and POP3 greatly increases the security and privacy of personal e-mail. For this reason IMAP and POP3 are only available in a secure form and therefore the standard, insecure form of IMAP and POP3 are not available with EnGarde.
Using a secure form of these protocols requires a client that can support them. We will discuss how to configure both Netscape Mail for secure IMAP and Microsoft Outlook for secure IMAP and secure POP3.
