Using it

To use this, you must open the ssh tunnel. Run the script sshmail from the command line, ssh will ask for your password to mail.pa.msu.edu. Your email client will asked for the password to "localhost", here you again give your password to mail.pa.msu.edu (this is for the actual IMAP connection).
