2f mail transition

I'm moving mail servers today. Studio2f mail will be down for a short while this afternoon. Nothing should bounce, but there will be large delays in delivery to me. Playing with Ettercap has made me extremely aware how easy it to grab passwords (credit card numbers, etc.) out of the ether, so I'm moving to encrypted connections for everything I do. I currently SSH just about everything with tunnels, but my mail provider has always been a weak spot. No SSL, no serious authentication. Repeat after me: "There will be no clear text passwords on my network."
