Re: SSL wrapping of Outlook ?

Is this an SSL issue or an Outlook bug ? Previous verions of Outlook only showed a handshake between the MTU and
 ssl connection.
Anyone have any ideas how to make Outlook XP not show the password ?

Outlook is very buggy.
I think at technet (or it was in usenet) you can read a lot of articles to the SSL problem in Outlook. There are different issues with SSL depending on the Outlook version and patchlevel. I would say: It is much luck if an Outlook user can use SSL secured POP3 and SMTP servers.
