SSL Support with 3rd Party Application

Several users have expressed a desire to have SSL/TLS support for SMTP in Weather Message. The cost of this upgrade from my tcp/ip vendor has been too costly for the small number of users needing this capability.

After alot of research, I discovered a free application that will create a secure tunnel to the smtp server. Stunnel is a universal SSL wrapper. I have tested it tonight with my ISP and it works fine. I also tested it with gmail with success. I will publish setup information on the WxMesg group about this application.

You will find information on Stunnel at http://www.stunnel.org/
