Add support for SOCKS5 / PROXY for every IMAP account

Reported by Pavel Balayev | March 4th, 2016 @ 04:08 PM

The problem is that some of the email providers require fixed IP to send email, thus I would like to add SOCKS5 support into Mailmate. It would great if I could configure a unique SOCKS5 for every IMAP account I have.

This solves 2 problems

  1. Account access when access is limited by IP address
  2. Privacy, when I don't want to send emails from my home network.

This request is vital for me, and since there are no email clients for Mac OS X with similar functionality MailMate will surely benefit of these features.

    If this feature requires additional funding, I'll be glad to discuss it.

    I only have plans to replace the use of OpenSSH for network connections with Apple's own CFNetwork. The latter should make the proxy/socks settings in the System Preferences work without additional work in MailMate. (I also need to switch to CFNetwork for other reasons.)

    Could it be a solution to setup SMTP in MailMate to connect to a port on localhost instead and then use ssh to redirect it: ssh -D 2001 user@example.com?
