     1It is extremely easy to set up an IMAP server with SSL.  
     2On Red Hat EL5 (or CentOS5) it is a two-step process.  
     3You can optionally get a Thawte or UW-CA  
     4cert and put it at /etc/pki/tls/certs/localhost.crt if you  
     5don't want to use a self-signed one. It's a simple IMAP setup

     7Thunderbird, Apple Mail, and Outlook.
