 +[05] HOW CAN I MAKE A SECURE TUNNEL/​CONNECTION FOR POP3/IMAP?
  
 +     To do this, you must first be a MetaARPA member. ​ Second, you must
 +     have a flexible SSH client on your computer that will allow you to
 +     ​create an ssh tunnel/tcp port forward rule.
 +
 +     To set up a secure pop3 or imap tunnel, you'll want to issue a 
 +     ​command on *your* computer similar to this:
 +
 +     ssh -l  -p 443 -n -N -q -L :mail: tty.freeshell.org
 +
 +     ​-l ​               Your SDF user id
 +     -p 443                  The MetaARPA sshd server port
 +     -L :​mail: ​ A local port, the mailserve and a remote port
 +                             ​Examples:​
 +                 
 +                             ​pop3: ​    -L 9999:​mail.freeshell.org:​110
 +                             ​imap: ​    -L 9999:​mail.freeshell.org:​143
 +
 +     Once you have set up this tunnel, then all you need to do is point your
 +     ​client (a mailreader, fetchmail, web browser, et cetera) to the 9999
 +     port on your local host.  You will then be using the ssh tunnel to
 +     ​connect to SDF.
 +
 +     Also, note that mail.freeshell.org runs imaps as well.
