The connection in plain pop3 is always in clear; if you just want to hide
what you are typing just suppress local echo on the telnet client and type
blindly.

Oggetto: pop3 over telnet and clear text passwords

I often use pop3 over telnet to check on email boxes some users have.(ie
that they've been setup properly) How do I mask the fact that the
username/password is transmitted as clear text?(If I can?) Thanks Murad
