    (@tmmslynn)


    Hi everyone,

    I am using Postie. To date I have not had any problems with it. I run the blog for my school and we use this for teachers to post to their pages. Today I had a few teachers say they sent them email but the post is not up yet. When I go to process emails i get this error message “error establishing a secure connection”

    What might this mean? and how can I fix it?

  • Same problem at EvxOnline, had to replace my domain by their real mail server…

    I will open a ticket with them…

    Just annoying as port 110 (POP3) is still used (no ssl)…

    I actually downgraded to v 1.7.32 I don’t want to take the chance of it not working again.

    Since you are trying to connect on port 110 there shouldn’t be any certificate checking. Is Postie set to POP3-SSL or POP3? It should be POP3.

    just POP3 and port 110 but it still fail on TLS step if I use my domain name as mail server (as I am asked by EvxOnline)…
    All ok if just changing to real mail server name…

    Could you click the Debug button and send the resulting output to help@postieplugin.com so I can see why it is trying to use SSL/TLS – thanks.

    It seems I cannot submit my reply…

    Thank you.

    Hello, I want to edit a previous post because I saw it publishes private information that should not be publicly available (part of a debug listing for a Postie plugin problem).
    Unfortunately I realized that after more than the 35 minutes allowed…
    Please, can you delete that reply with the full debug listing ?

    Thanks for your quick help
