nPOPuk have announced the immediate availability of an updated version of their recently released 2.12 client. This new release as 2.13 enhances the program with one of the most requested Windows CE e-mail client features - built-in SSL.

SSL, or Security Socket Layer, is a web encryption protocol which uses public key certification to encrypt and subsequently decrypt communications between a client (nPOPuk) and server (your mail server).

If your ISP supports SSL, up until now you either had to use a PC or install additional software onto your CE device to gain access to your e-mail. With the 2.13 release, the OpenSSL security layer has been integrated directly into the application, allowing SSL support right out of the box.

It's good to see some insightful development going on, and some ports back from established open source projects. Good work nPOPuk team!

And thanks to community member isotherm, who showed me how to add zlib compression support for SSLv3.

2.13p2 has been released, updating to OpenSSL 0.9.8l, which was just released this week to deal with an SSL vulnerability.
