the current solution, and works.
What Markus is describing, namely completely seperating each virtual
the end user, so that it's possible for a user to benefit from only
remember a single [username, domain, password] triple for TLS encrypted
an account, is not a completely unreasonable Idea.
It works for http (if, as you pointed out, excluding WinXP is an
on the userbase), it works for xmpp and while it doesn't work for
or retrival, it would be nice if it did.
I for one am waiting client support for SNI, IPv6 or mail submission
or whatever other puzzlepiece to the solution for this problem.
Assuming "E-Mail" will stll exist when that happens...
