Guide Review - MailRelayer 1.4
You'd log in, read, delete, filter, move and send mails, and all actions would automatically be synchronized with all other access points. Unfortunately, setting up your own IMAP server can be cumbersome and costly. But it need not be.
MailRelayer turns your email program (only if it's one of the supported ones, though) into an IMAP server. With no configuration and no hassles, you get all the features of a "real" server.
MailRelayer even works nicely with a dynamic DNS setup, and you can use one-time passwords and, optionally, SSL encryption for a maximum of security if you access your mail from public terminals.
