Gmail drops support for connecting to pop3 servers with self signed certs

Not good for for the small folks. One suggestion was to allow placing the public keys on Googles side in the user configuration. That would be a heck of a lot better than just dropping users into never never land."

"It's" is a contraction of "it is". The posessive is "its" with no apostrophe.

He's ugly, she's pretty, it's ugly. His car is ugly, her computer is pretty, its hard drive thrashes.
