It’s been fun to watch Google and Yahoo! battling it out re: the amount of email storage they offer. But I’m interested in Yahoo! stepping up to offering SSL-based access to POP and SMTP — something Google’s Gmail has supported for quite a while.
For those of us frequent travelers who often need to rely on wireless networks in public places, SSL-based POP/SMTP access has become a must — to avoid spraying our email logon passwords around.
