Change SMTP port for email clients as of 01.12.21

Nov 10, 2021 11:43 AM

For historical reasons, it has been possible so far to use port 587 in addition to port 465 for the outgoing mail server (SMTP) for the connection to mail.uni-freiburg.de (CommuniGate) with SSL.

However, this port is not originally intended for SSL, but for STARTTLS. To enable a STARTTLS connection in the future we will change the port on the mail server (CommuniGate) on 12/01/21. For further information please refer to this wiki entry:
