Mail and SSL

The mail stuff is done. Horray!

SSL should “just work” as long as you use the name mail.gigo.com. We’re using a paid-for certificate that should have root trusts. I tested Thunderbird and Mail.App (apple), and they worked. I also got pine working (with these instructions).

For those who are curious, the new combination of software on the server is now: OpenSSL, Dovecot POP3/IMAP, Postfix (with Dovecot SMTP AUTH), Squirrelmail, and Apache with SSL. Filtering is provided by both Dovecot LDA + libsieve, and via procmail, depending on user preferences.
