AFAIK, I'm using sshd from the base system with defaults. How can I check? Also, I use courier-imap. With desktop machines physically attached to my LAN, I don't have the IMAP clients using SSL and I get no delay connecting. However I have a laptop that I bring home from work on occasion and it is configured to use SSL. When I use it with a wireless card on my home LAN, I seem to get similar delays when using it's IMAP client. Might the two be related? Thanks for your help!
