Error message "“your server does not support the connection encryption type you have specified"

Error message “your server does not support the connection encryption type you have specified” you need to connect securely”.

If you are having this problem with email, first make sure you are connecting securely, as our servers require using secure protocol. If you get this error “your server does not support the connection encryption type you have specified” you need to connect securely.

Look for an option to activate encryption; it's usually in the advanced settings near where you can specify the port numbers for incoming and outgoing connections:

If using IMAP for your mail Enter 993 in the Incoming Server box
Enter 465 as the port for Outgoing Server (SMTP) text box
If using POP3 Enter 995 in the Incoming Server box
Enter 465 as the port for Outgoing Server (SMTP) text box

Check the box that says use same settings as incoming server.
Check the box that says outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication
Check the box for TLS/SSL


If you using an older computer and do not see a box for TLS/SSL, this information may help: (link to knowledgebase)
