Do we provide Secure SMTP, POP3, IMAP (SSL and TLS)?

SSL/TLS is supported for all email protocols.  Where your client supports it, you can use TLS on the native ports SMTP:25, IMAP:143, POP3:110 to enable an encrypted connection (sometimes referred to as STARTTLS in email clients).  This is often detected and used automatically by email clients. You can also use the explicitly encrypted ports for each of these protocols:  SMTPS:465, IMAPS:993, POP3S:995.

Note : Secure connections should be made using the server host name not your own domain (please see your welcome letter for your mail server host name), connecting using your own mail domain is possible but will produce an alert that the certificate does not match the domain. The connection will still be secured however.
