Gmail Now Secured By Default

Google has decided to make the SSL encrypted sessions in Gmail on by default now!
I talked about this little known option back in September. You no longer have to go into the settings to turn it on, it's on by default now. Yay Google!

Now if only Hotmail, and Yahoo mail would follow the lead.

Hotmail has followed suit! now Yahoo where's your update???
