See GNOME bug #336074 and #336076.


Does Thunderbird actually support IMAP over SSH yet?

Some mail servers don't actually have an IMAP dæmon listening, or allow
password authentication. It has to be SSH.

 $ ssh baythorne.infradead.org exec /usr/sbin/dovecot --exec-mail imap
* PREAUTH [CAPABILITY IMAP4rev1 SASL-IR SORT THREAD=REFERENCES MULTIAPPEND UNSELECT LITERAL+ IDLE CHILDREN NAMESPACE LOGIN-REFERRALS] Logged in as dwmw2


Evolution can do this. Mutt can do this. Pine can do this.
Sylpheed can do this. Etpan can do this. Can Thunderbird?

Also, can Thunderbird send plain text without mangling it, or does the
documentation at http://mbligh.org/linuxdocs/Email/Clients/Thunderbird
still apply?
