Do (aq) support Tunnelled POP3 over SSL?

The short answer is yes :

All you need to do is order a standard (aq) pop3 account. SSL tunnelling is available via our proxy servers at no additional cost.

If you contact our support team via the ticket system we can advise you of your settings.


However, if you know your current pop3 server name with (aq), you can work out your settings based on the following :

Go to "start" >> "programs" >> "accessories" and choose "command prompt".

At the command prompt type "nslookup pop3servername" (without the quotes), where pop3servername is the name of your (aq) pop3 server.

A number will be returned.

If it is 195.224.50.11 , your new pop3 setting would be vpnproxy.co.uk on port 11011

If it is 195.224.50.12 , your new pop3 setting would be vpnproxy.co.uk on port 11012

If it is 195.224.50.13 , your new pop3 setting would be vpnproxy.co.uk on port 11013

If it is 195.224.50.15 , your new pop3 setting would be vpnproxy.co.uk on port 11015

If it is 195.224.50.24 , your new pop3 setting would be vpnproxy.co.uk on port 11024

If it is 195.224.50.25 , your new pop3 setting would be vpnproxy.co.uk on port 11025

If it is 195.224.50.28 , your new pop3 setting would be vpnproxy.co.uk on port 11028

The advantages of using tunnelled pop3 mean that your mailbox username and password are not transmitted in plain text across the internet.
