It's been years since the spam wars were at the front of the debate, but all the salient points from then remain salient today: when you let unaccountable third parties see your mail and decide which messages you can see, the potential for mischief is unlimited.
Hilary Clinton used Mxlogic — now a division of Intel — to filter her clintonemail.com mail. The service would have received all of her email before it was forwarded on to her. Sensitive and confidential matters of state were exposed to untrustworthy insiders and spies/crooks who penetrated their network.
So I thought, what if she has web mail? And sure enough – I GOT A LOGIN PROMPT! https://mail.clintonemail.com And I have verified by the SSL certificate that this is indeed the clintonemail.com server – still online! Click here and type in mail.clintonemail.com
I already tried hillary2016 for the password and that didn't work. But I'm looking at this and thinking WTF!
Is Hillary's server secure? It get's a B rating here. Only supports weak protocols. Uses only SHA1. TLS 1.0.
Another SSL testing site. https://www.whynopadlock.com/check.php – type in mail.clintonemail.com. In contrast type in mail.junkemailfilter.com. My server passes – Hillary's doesn't.
