It's annoying to have separate passwords for each service :(.

Additionally, the SSL certificate doesn't match the hostname. This is
mostly just annoying and can be easily fixed by creating a proper
certificate. Ideally, the created certificates are signed by some real
CA like cacert.org who sign for free. This way users only have to
import the cacert.org root certificate and not to accept the
self-signed certificate each time. And I assume most users don't even
check the certificate at all, they just accept it. Also because there
seems to be no easy way to check the fingerprints. So the most of the
whole idea of SSL encryption is lost by this fact.
