Windows 7: Google flips default switch for always-on Gmail crypto.

Google flips default switch for always-on Gmail crypto.

Quote:
Just hours after Google disclosed it and at least 20 other large companies were the targets of highly sophisticated cyberattacks, the online giant said it would enhance the security of its email service by automatically encrypting entire web sessions.
The change, which Google is in the process of rolling out now, means Gmail sessions will be automatically protected from start to finish with the SSL, or secure sockets Layer, protocol, even if a user doesn't specifically ask for it. Up until now, users had to check a setting in their Gmail options to get always-on encryption.

you can also select NOT to use SSL if you want, if fx. your connection to Gmail“s server is to slow, then only the login is encrypted.

Is there any good cloud based email clients. I'm fed up with gMail and Googles, "I want to know your life". Any personal suggestions ? If not I'm going with just downloading my email locally. Next will be using Google to search the Net.
