Re: [Evolution] Ports and SSL/TLS

Sorry, I missed your response. Thank you for getting back.

My encryption options are "none", "starttls after connecting" or "tls
on a dedicated port". I do not have SSL on the list of options. Am I
looking at the wrong spot? I do not see "IMAP over SSL" anywhere.
Version 3.22.6 from Debian 9 repositories.

Thank you!

I select TLS in the drop down lost for encryption, nothing works.

If I use no security and ports 143 and 587, everything is fine.

As I said in answer to the very same question here:

"Port 993 is IMAPS, aka IMAP over SSL - if that's what you need to
then set the encryption to that and the port number will change

There is no option for "TLS" (certainly not on the most recent
versions), there is "STARTTLS" which uses the standard IMAP port then
switches to a different port for the encryption, or there's "SSL"
uses a different port.
