SMTP Servers to Discontinue Support for SSLv3 E-Mail Protocol

Thu, 09/28/2017 - 12:16 -- wentod

Beginning Tuesday, October 4, 2017, Rensselaer's SMTP servers will no longer support the SSLv3 protocol for sending e-mail.  SSLv3 is an older protocol that is being phased out, and already is not supported on IMAP and other services.

Members of the DotCIO staff have identified those users with older e-mail clients who may be affected by this change, and will send them instructions on how to update their mail configuration in order to continue sending e-mail from their address.

If you have any questions regarding this change, please contact the VCC Help Desk staff.
