+ - Gmail drops support for connecting to pop3 servers with self signed certs-> 2

Submitted by DECula
DECula (6113) writes "In a move not communicated to it's users before hand, Google's Gmail servers were reconfigured to not connect to remote pop3 servers that have self-signed certificates, leaving folks with unencrypted connections, or no service when getting email from other services.
Not good for for the small folks. One suggestion was to allow placing the public keys on Googles side in the user configuration. That would be a heck of a lot better than just dropping users into never never land."

    "It's" is a contraction of "it is". The posessive is "its" with no apostrophe.
