Virtualization is not getting email and the web on your phone! It is not being able to sign on AOL, Yahoo, and even that touchstone of the current cyber age Google! It is also not getting text in Timbuktu or tweets from the New York Times in Tomsk. Being connected may be a necessity but it is not virtualization! Virtualization is sitting down in front of any computer and having your workplace available; it is a necessity!
Regardless of whether you use an email application such as Outlook or Mail, or if you simply point your browser to Gmail or Yahoo to check your email, you should always make sure that you are using a secure connection. A secure connection between your computer and your mail server is one in which your computer is able to recognize that the mail server it is communicating with is indeed the intended server. This connection is verified by use of certificates which a website obtains from a certificate authority as a means of being able to certify to your computer that they are who they say they are.
