   I would suggest using SMTP AUTH, which by default is functional
   only under TLS encryption.  (Cleartext passwords, and all that.)

   It needs patches to POP and/or IMAP servers in addition to of running
   whoson server process.  It essentially logs IP address from which the
   successfull connection was made, and keeps (among others) username
   as supplied by the application to the whoson server.

   What the smtpserver will then do is ask if SMTP source IP address is
   known to the whoson server, and what is known about it.
