My host advertises "safe email" but does not support password encryption...

I'm the technical coordinator for a company, and the hosting service and ESP we use advertises "safe email". Their native email client offers an https version for web access to email, but they also give instructions to access email via IMAP and POP connections. But the IMAP and POP connections don't support any sort of SSL or encryption.

How is this at all safe? Even if I access my email 99% of the time on the https website (which I don't because it is so painfully slow), accessing my email in other ways just one single time makes my password vulnerable.

What to do what to do what to do...
Maybe I'll complain and then do nothing if they do nothing about it.

Hole-ee-****.

Their response to my question on how to keep my emails secure:
"As for your inquiry regarding mail clients and devices, they would provide their own encryption. For example, when setting up your email on your device or client, you password is displayed as a dot or an asterisk, which protects your password"

I didn't pick them, they were the host when I joined the company.
We stuck with them because they f'd us hard and gave us 3 years of free hosting and email service as 'reparations'.
