Since Sharp now seems to focusing on enterprise markets, I was wondering if they've made any improvements security-wise on the new SL-6000. Seems to me that I can't go anywhere without places requiring at least SSL to connect to mail servers and LEAP or Cisco VPN to get on wireless networks. Is Sharp including any of this on the 6000?

I know there are some 3rd party solutions for some of these things, but I don't see how they can sell to enterprise markets without having some of this included by default.

Hmmm ... I don't see how Sharp thinks they can sell this PDA to enterprise markets then. It has been years since I was last able to get e-mail without SSL.

Ugh, that's disappointing. How does opie-mail compare to the built in app? Last I heard it does support SSL.

I found this stunnel program last night when I was dealing with a similar issue last night on my Mac (needed SSL for my news client). Is anyone familiar with how to configure it on the Zaurus?

stunnel is a command line program, so configuring zaurus should be same as on desktop machine. You could probably write a script to start stunnel with the right parameters and autolaunch the mail program.

The problem, for me, is that I use multiple imap servers, and they all use SSL, so stunnel is an awkward solution, at best.
