Only email clients with secure settings are able to use the rohan.sdsu.edu email server.
Unless configured to use secure (encrypted) protocols, email programs send your username, password, and email content as clear text that could possibly be intercepted by others, particularly on a wireless network. Check your email programs to make sure incomming (IMAP or POP) and outgoing (SMTP) servers are configured with secure settings:
