    Wow, just saw this over at PDA247:

    http://www.ses-soft.com/papi/PaPi-Mail/

    This is a pretty cool email client imo and support pop3/IMAP

    The only disadvantage is:

    This free version deleted the function of "IMAP4 over SSL" and "SMTP over SSL" from the commercial version. If you use these functions in the commercial version, When this version is installed, these functions will be invalid.
    Thus, probably won't work for gmail unfortunately, but still very nice imo!

    The lack of SSL support means that you can't authenticate securely (required for most IMAP) and probably will be unable to use SMTP (many providers, anyway).

    "Some", perhaps...Earthlink's authenticated SMTP server, for one, doesn't require SSL.

    pssh (a secure Telnet client) uses SSL, and it's freeware; same for TuSSH.
    SSL does not "cost money".

    True, but most products, particularly email clients, that offer SSL are geared towards businesses that are concerned or place a very high value on security. For such products, people, or more accurately businesses, are willing to pay a higher premium.

    All that to say, it makes sense why they don't include SSL in the free product; they want businesses/individuals to pay for the SSL product. From a business prospective it makes sense.
