Using Gmail

This is incorrect, at least for Gmail.  Above the editing box, choose
"<< Plain text," and the formatting bar magically disappears and your
message is sent in ASCII as $DEITY intended.  (The prompt changes to
"Rich formatting" so you can switch back and forth as desired.)  Trust
Google to play nice with FOSS, they love us.

Also incorrect.  I use Evolution with Gmail securely, by turning on the
option to use SSL encryption and password authentication.  The password
travels over the SSL encrypted session once it is established, QED.
