In the documentation, at the email configuration level, you can choose different values for encryption: “” (empty), ssl or tls.
My domain name is currently secure and has redirection rules (.htaccess, rewrite engine). So I do have https instead of http in my address bar. Everything is working well at this level.
The problem is that I don’t know what value to put in the configuration file for emails: “” (empty), ssl or tls ?
The configuration information given by my host (1and1 - Ionos) is not clear. It seems that it is possible to put ssl or tls… but I’m not sure. I don’t even know if it depends on the type of contract.
Finally, I would like to point out that currently no encryption information is entered in the configuration file… and it works perfectly (I receive emails well).
I just want to have a good configuration file, and therefore put the right encryption value.
Would you have an idea ?
Thank you in advance.
