Secure batch email with UUCP and SSH

Thursday, 17 March 2005, 8:35 AM EST

The POP protocol is no solution for people (like me) who want to fetch their email in a practical and efficient manner from multiple locations, be it from a dial-up account or a fixed Internet link. Thus, it seemed to me that UUCP over SSH provides great benefits for those people.
