I'll copy the important part again: > To establish a pipe to connect to port 25 of remote-server from > *port 4025 of localhost*, and to port 110 of remote-server from > *port 4110 of localhost*You then have to make Evo connect to localhost:4025 for the SMTP connection. And localhost:4110 for the POP connection. But you explicitly have to set this SSH tunnel up. Either yourself or through evo.
You can even edit your ~/.ssh/config to include smth like Host tunnel User username HostName remotehost LocalForward 4110 remotehost:110 LocalForward 4025 remotehost:25to have your tunnels set up with just a "ssh tunnel", instead of a "ssh -L 4025:remote-server:25 4110:remote-server:110 username remote-server". But as it's not the scope of evolution-hackers at all, I'll point you to ssh_config's man-page for further information.
