I am a little confused but have note yet had time and interest at the 
same time to back through the thread....

I thought when it started that the complaint was somebody using a public 
wiffy had been victimized by something I read about recently (and 
thought it was here that I had red it) where somebody sets up a 
fraudulent server on the wiffy that advertises a false-flag email 
"server" that strips out the security stuff and then sends the traffic 
to an accomplice-site that eventually gets the stripped traffic to its 
original destination.
