Windows 7: ActiveSync, SSL coming to Hotmail.

ActiveSync, SSL coming to Hotmail.

More information is being revealed about the next iteration of Microsoft's Live-branded products. We know when the new programs are going to start rolling out, we know that Windows XP won't be supported, and we know a lot about the features of the next Windows Live Messenger.

Now Windows Live Hotmail is in the spotlight. The web front-end gets a load of new bells and whistles, but two new features stand out in particular.

Following in the footsteps of Google's Gmail, Hotmail Wave 4 will offer full-session SSL. Presently, logging in to Hotmail uses HTTPS to protect user credentials from attack, but e-mail itself is delivered over unsecured HTTP. Gmail switched to using HTTPS for the entire sessionóboth logging in and reading/sending mailóby default in January (previously, it was an opt-in feature).

This is good...I just wish that I understood how to encrypt my email while enroute between my PC and the email server. I know that I could encrypt with OpenPGP via my client, but that would require using keys, which is not practical for my purposes. I'm just thinking about the possibility of someone intercepting emails either coming or going, not how they could be read by someone other than intended afterward.

Just use a SSL enabled session. HTTPS and SMTPS does this trick, and any decent mail client or web browser supports these now basic features.

If you want something to worry about, suggest you to be more concerned about mail transferred between servers. I'm not aware of any available encryption method for such -- besides IPv6 and its native IPSEC, which is still working on paper only.
