Secure connection to optus mail?

Optus instructions for setting up an email client are here:

http://www.optus.com.au/shop/support/answer/using-an-email-application-with-optusnet-email

 

It says: "From the 'Security Settings' options: Select 'None'"

 

And then, it says to send 'normal', that is, not encrypted password.

 

That's crazy! I am so not going to send my uncrypted password across the internet. There are bad people out there.

 

How do I securely connect to my email?

Re: Secure connection to optus mail?

Hey there,

I don't think they offer it. You do have an encrypted connection via web mail I believe. I'm still surprised that folks still use ISP supplied email addy as there main stream.

Cheers Dave
