    What is SSL?

Alot of the time you will come across the term SSL and wonder what it is. To put it simply SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer, and provides a way to encrypt and therefore hide Information sent between computers.

SSL is used by nearly all eCommerce sites, most major Webmail business and basically any place which requires some level of security in protecting your accounts.

In terms of Proxy Servers, the standard HTTP Proxy Server does not support SSL. SSL is provided through HTTP Proxy Servers via the CONNECT method.

So if you cant seem to use a Proxy to login to Yahoo, get yourself an SSL/CONNECT Proxy Server and try that instead.
