SSL e-mail authentication

The two e-mail protocols POP3 and IMAP both send the user's password in clear text. This is an obvious security risk, especially with people increasingly using unsecured wireless access points at internet "hot-spots", friends' houses, and so on.

I feel it would be beneficial to add SSL support so that communications with the mailserver could be encrypted.
