SSL connection

I needed a way to connect to gmail’s POP server (directly without a mail client), it looks like you can’t connect to their server without using SSL. I thought about using netcat combined with stunnel which can let you connect to SSL based servers however i found an easier way using a command from the openssl suite.

openssl s_client -connect pop.gmail.com:995
