while i have no reservations about logging in from home via http, at work or other public internet access points are starting to make me think about what im posting or what personal details are available. without sounding too paranoid, any chance of a ssl / https login page ?

once logged in, could redirect to normal with a cookie for identification...

SSL adds a massive amount of overhead to the servers, and to be honest what's the point? You'd be more likely to suffer from a key logger than someone sniff your traffic.

To put it in context, every time you check your mail you are sending your password in clear text

Nah, will have to see what dane thinks/says about the situation.

If he is running on a shared server he might have a SSL certificate already inplace and this shouldn't be a problem, however if he dfoesn't then the certificates cost MONEY. (Yearly fee too)

I don't really see the need. I only use them for important information such as credit card details, client details and things like this... <_<

I know I do have it on the server that I have access to but I don't really see a need for it.

actually i use an ssh tunnel to pickup my email :) i wasnt worried about key loggers, just those with access to proxy logs.

also u could create your own server cert & just accept it 1st time thru.
i dont think it would create that big a load but then im not familar with the whats on the current server.

cheers
