Just as an aside, here is a quote from the above mentioned hint:

"The problem I encountered is that I use ssh tunneling to login to my
pop3 server at With pop3 (imap and others
probably too) your password is transmitted as clear text, much like
happens with telnet. I don't quite like that, so I use port forwarding
with openssh."

A lot (most?) pop3 clients and servers can use SSL to tranmit passwords encrypted.
