Actually, for the last patches I sent I already had to tunnel them over some 3rd
party SMTP-over-HTTPS service because of our firewall blocking access to
the Gmail SMTP server I previously used for that :-(

I guess tunnelling over SSH is another option, although I have no idea how to
do such a thing (didn't know it was possible). At the end of the day, I am not
a software guy, so I'm not _that_ much into these kinds of things ...

That doesn't work for _regular_ mail, though, as I would not be able to setup
a mail client for that. I can't install anything and I can't even touch the settings
of my Outlook client :-(

For incoming mail I'm actually bulk forwarding the mailing list through my
Gmail account now because our mail server stopped accepting it directly.
WIth POP3 and IMAP being blocked, I still need to find some way to receive
patches without our Exchange server fubarring them though (tips are welcome!).
Right now the only solution I have is fetch them from my home PC and take
them to work on a USB stick. Welcome to 2020 ...
