(DataFlex) IMAP over Multiple Hop SSH

Demonstrates how to read IMAP email (using TCP or TLS) tunneled through mulitple-hop SSH. The scheme looks like this:

Application => ServerSSH1 => ServerSSH2 => IMAPServer

The ConnectThroughSsh and UseSsh methods are added in Chilkat version 9.5.0.55 to accomplish this task.
