Hi Paul

SquirrelMail supports STARTTLS.  If I recall correctly, you set
$use_smtp_tls to 2 in config.php
But I only has changed the communication to the SMTP-server via the
administrative plugin to "STARTTLS". Will this plugin change the settings in
the config.php file?

Is my understanding about TLS and STARTTLS correct (see my understanding

"As I have understand the difference between STARTTLS and TLS, STARTTLS is a
protocol where the client, e.g. SquirrelMail, first communicate over an
unsecure connection, but after that communicate over TLS, because STARTTLS
tell SquirrelMail that the server can communicate over TLS. When I select
the TLS-option in the SquirrelMail interface, SquirrelMail and other
applications, require a "directly" TLS-connection via another port number,
e.g. 465".

Thanks in advance for your answer, and have a nice day.
