To use SSL with email, both the client and the server must have built-in support.  The sample code to follow will show you how to easily include this support into your .Net client applications with just a few lines of code!  The server must also support SSL.  If your mail server does not support SSL, you may be able to use SSL gateway software, or a relay server which supports SSL.  The gateway/relay server accepts mail over an SSL encrypted connection and then passes the data on to your server over a standard unencrypted channel.  If the gateway/relay and your server reside on the same system, or behind the same firewall, most of the benefits of SSL may be retained.  The server will also need a digital certificate for SSL communications which can be obtained from a certificate authority.
