'fetchmail' is what the name say: It fetchs mail FROM an ISP's Server
Yes, but it passes it to an SMTP server (otherwise it's largely pointless).
However, the issue of no SSL support for that part is largely minimal
- you're passing the traffic over the loopback in nearly all cases.
To sniff the traffic you'd have to be on the box itself.
Note that protecting the traffic with SSL is pointless unless the
entire transit, from sender to recipient, is similarly protected, and
the data is encrypted when it's sat on the IMAP/POP server(s).
Please keep list traffic on the list.
