[DeleGate-En] Re: POP/SSL Relay
22 May 2001 13:26:15 GMT "Maxime Dubois" <>


No, actually, I used a sniffer and saw the connection between client and
POP-Delegate is not encrypted... I saw "STARTLS" on the console and thought
it was, but I was wrong.
When I use the -St option instead of -st, the proxy cuts the connection with
the client (Outlook express and netscape messenger).
So I can't use POP/SSL!

Is it a problem with mail clients or a bad conf of the proxy?
