Seems a bit crufty.  I've been tunneling imap and submit through ssh
on port 443 for years.  Works great.


PS: If anyone wants a uucp-friendly Telebit Trailblazer modem card
with the popular mod of a buffered chip in place of the standard
unbuffered one, just ask.  You'll have to find a computer old enough
to have an ISA slot for it.
