I'm getting my email by SMTP/POP3 to my local ISP provider like that :
email client <--- unencrypted cx ---> POP/SMTP server
"cx" stands for connection.
That provider doesn't support TLS/SSL neither for SMTP nor for POP3.
That doesn't bother me when I'm at home (because capturing packet between me and the ISP is not so easy) but I'm pretty concerned sending my credentials on a open/public wifi.
I do not want to use any other email provider.
I'm thinking setting up a kind of proxy on a server at my home to avoid sending credentials in clear when outside home, like that :
my email client <--- encrypted cx --> Home server <--- unencrypted cx ---> ISP POP/SMTP server
How may I achieve that ?
Will SSH tunneling do the work ?
PS : Server is on Debian/Linux and client on Ubuntu/Linux
