This area is for listing all possible email features related to security. OSAF will eventually prioritize this list to determine which features will go in which releases.

Note that a lot of security issues -- SSL, Kerberos, APOP, etc -- are listed on the Possible Email Configuration Features page.

  • Public key infrastructure
  • Enable/disable specific HTML and email features based on security risk
  • Andy Hertzfeld's automatic secure email proposal, Brad Templeton's similar paper, Andy and Brad's consensus position
  • Secure connections (e.g. "no passwords in cleartext")
