I'm not happy with unencrypted passwords, though. That's simply not usable.
Lack of SSL means anyone can read any Start.ca users' email on the same cable segment. Okay, that's not great, but commonplace.
Worse though, MUCH worse, is lack of protection for the email account credentials (password). This means anyone can similarly then log in to Start.ca email as somebody else, and read/delete their emails, and send emails "from" that user. All without the user even knowing. That's bad, really bad.
Or am I missing something here?
