I know this must have been asked numerous times. I have asked this myself already many months ago. As I just received an email about the pending email server upgrade, I was wondering whether we can expect secure POP/IMAP/SMTP connections in a reasonable future? Support keeps repeating that supporting secure connections on an email server in a shared hosting environment is almost impossible. I am no expert but this does sound strange in comparison to some cheap Linux hosts which offer this as a standard feature. I hate to have two separate services (email and web hosting) by two different companies. I'd love if you guys at Winhost could make the magic happen. I'd be willing to pay more for this extra service. I believe this is the only serious drawback in your entire hosting offering. Now, don't get me wrong. I am super satisfied with both the service as well as support. It is just that secure email is sorely missed and the upgrade notification enticed me to write this. I hate transmitting passwords in plain text so I'd appreciate any advice for an affordable email hosting suggestions. Thanks!
