One thing always disappointed me about local email software applications.
And that's the password storage.
The password is stored locally on your machine.
So, I'm sure there are password stealers that will sniff out stored email passwords.
That seems to be a huge vulnerability in my opinion.
I was curious if anyone could offer their opinion on local email password storage and how much of a vulnerability it is?
Do you think accessing email via browser client is better? Especially if accessed via secure password storage like roboform or lastpass?
I'd love to have a discussion on this.
PS: Also, locally stored passwords like for Skydrive, Google Docs, Dropbox, they all seem VERY vulnerable to me.
