I use POP and SMTP over SSH.  You can do this by using the "-L" option of 
ssh, but that means you need to start a new session every time you change IP 
addresses (which is too painful for me).
I have inetd use a special port on localhost (not bound to any IP address 
other than which runs ssh to my server with a command to run my 
"pass" program.  Pass is one of the many TCP port redirection programs, it 
connects to a specified IP address and port (port 25 or 110 on localhost) and 
passes data back and forth.  For this I have a special RSA key which allows 
passwordless logins to my server which can run the pass program (and not much 
else).  The ssh client program is run from an account which has the private 
key in question, but which is locked so it can only be accessed from su and 
Then I make my ssh server listen on various ports on one of it's IP addresses 
(such as port 25).  This is so that I can use networks where port 22 is 
filtered for "security reasons" (IE they don't want security).

My current location - X marks the spot.
