You can configure mail servers to deliver mail via SSL (if the receiving 
machine supports SSL), Postfix supports this reasonably well.  For 
downloading mail you can install a POP server that supports SSL (courier-pop 
is working well for me) and then disable the non-SSL POP server if you wish.

If you send email to me or to a mailing list that I use which has >4 lines
of legalistic junk at the end then you are specifically authorizing me to do
whatever I wish with the message and all other messages from your domain, by
posting the message you agree that your long legalistic sig is void.
