As part of our ongoing efforts to improve the AWWS infrastructure, SSL has now been implemented (as of 03/04/2014) on our webmail platform. You can be sure of this by checking that your browser shows “https://” in the address bar. This new security feature will mean that data transferred between your computer and our mailserver is encrypted while using webmail.
We are working hard to extend SSL to our POP3, IMAP and SMTP protocols so that mail is encrypted while you use email clients such as Microsoft Outlook with our email services. At present, you can opt to use SSL on email clients, but these are still self-signed which will mean your computer will give you a security warning when adding any accounts hosted by us. We will update this page as soon as we have any updates relating to this matter.
