No, I mean SSH. SSH uses keys from ssh-agent and doesn't want to store
my password for itself. SSH does compression. SSH lets me in to machines
which don't have a public-facing IMAP dæmon. For that matter, SSH lets
me in to machines which don't even have a public IP address, because it
can be configured with a 'ProxyCommand' for certain hosts -- so for
hosts in '*.baythorne.internal' it knows it shouldn't try a DNS lookup
and direct connection; instead it should run "ssh
baythorne.infradead.org exec netcat $host $port" 

Evolution, just like pine, mutt, etc., can get at its IMAP folders by
running "ssh -C mail.baythorne.internal exec /usr/sbin/imapd". Can
Sylpheed?
