I found a terrible security flaw in shawmail when accessed on the server.  Sometimes I access my shaw webmail on friends' Mac computers, I log in and then log out.  I happened to look at the history and clicked on the last visited website which was my email on shawmail, my email opened even though I previously logged out.  The top item in history was "logout successful", underneath was shawmail -inbox 2, by clicking on it my email opened.  I tried this on 3 other Mac computers in various places.  The same problem.  It means that if I did not know, anyone using the computer after me, could open my email.  The only way to get rid of this is by deleting history and exiting Safari completely.

I consider this a terrible security flaw as lots of people don't know this (I asked) and use computers not their own to access their shaw mail on the server.

Can you enlighten me on this subject?

Thank you.
