[Suggestion] Encrypt the POP3 user's Password.

I found the POP3 user's Password do not have some encryption, I think it's not very security.

As far as I know currently there is no easy way to encrypt the POP3 password. WinNT/2000/XP, though, allows to control access rights to individual files and directories, so if you wish you can protect crontab files from outsiders (just be sure to grant access to these files for those users whose user names are used with "run as user" option).

That's a way for the crontab files.

But I think, at least the password input window should show the password as ******. Although this is not very security, it can do something.
