Post Gmail.


Hello all.
When I want to browse Gmail.com I think that I go to insecure page
"https://accounts.google.com/ServiceLogin?service=mail&passive=true&rm=false&continue=http://mail.google.com/mail/&scc=1&ltmpl=default&ltmplcache=2"
Can you tell me why "rm=false" ? What is it?

Thanks

The parts of the URL following the ? are GET parameters. I don't know what they mean and they are going to be specific to the site application. The site your connecting to is secure (https) which I suspect is because it is performing authentication. Following that, it appears that you are going to be redirected to an insecure page (continue=http. This makes sense from Google's standpoint a secure page requires more resources on their end.

If you want a more secure email, consider using something else, like hushmail that operates via an HTTPS page.

I can understand you're anxious to get this resolved but you asked about that by now repeatedly. As I said in one of your other threads please continue the discussion in one place. And in your case that's https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ds-4175447529/
