Oops, I was a bit unclear.  Talking to SquirrelMail over https is no
problem and is easy to setup.  Getting SquirrelMail to talk imaps is a
different problem entirely - the documentation says it is supported
under PHP 4.3, but no SSL handshake seems to take place.  :-(

Making SquirrelMail talk SSL to the IMAP server isn't necessary, since
the IMAP server is usually local, but we had this situation:

1. uw-imap won't do clear-text passwords over a non-SSL link.

2. SquirrelMail won't do SSL and only wants to send clear-text

Our workaround uses stunnel - uw-imap thinks it is talking SSL, so
accepts the clear-text passwords...

peace & happiness,
