Re: Safe, secure mail relay
hi ya daniel
fun stuff ...
- ssh and mutt seems to be the best...
- receiver of the emails see the email coming form your
normal accounts and domain names...
- web-based emails: webased.riddlemaster.org
- you cans end and receive emails from any ip#
- security of your login/pwd is at issue but only for
sending/receiving emails for travelDan@riddlemaster.org
list of web-based mail apps
- yahoo/hotmail/excite type accounts are for the birds ??
- setup a local ppp dialin server w/ an 800# to call your own server
( if you can dial up att/aol/earthlink... you can call yourself )
- international phone calls might be a different issue
( best way ?? )
- when you are traveling.. do you need access to your other windoze PCs
and its shares ??
- use ssh if you dont need to talk to windoze PCs
- use VPN ... freeswan + ipsec + ??
- $150 cablemodem routers with vpn ports that accepts incoming
vpn connection from any where ....
( i think its bad idea...but it works for some folks )
- if you prefer pop/imap...
- use secure pop3 ...
- secure smtp w/ SSL ....
