That was how I was using SM... I wanted to lock down all accesses from
the outside to telnet and ssh to specific static Internet addresses, 
but I still wanted to be able to check mail remotely when I was out of
town.  SM seemed like a perfect fit, except in this case I think that
it hurt my security instead of helped it.

I should have probably done what you did and .htaccess'd it so SSL
was protecting me.  I should probably have installed squirrel mail
in an alternate directory so it would be a bit harder to find...
