Inconsistent TLS access to POP account

Recommended Posts

I am having a problem using TLS with my SPAMCOP account. Using straight SSL on port 995 usually works OK. However, using TLS on port 110 is a hit or miss proposition. Here are two logs of my attempts to download mail using TLS.

[This is a successful connection] :D:D:D

* Connecting to POP3 server: mail.spamcop.net...

[13:17:11] POP3< +OK Hello there.

[13:17:11] POP3> STLS

[13:17:11] POP3< +OK Begin SSL/TLS negotiation now.

[13:17:19] POP3> USER beerstud[at]spamcop.net

[13:17:19] POP3< +OK Password required.

[13:17:19] POP3> PASS ********

[13:17:19] POP3< +OK logged in.

[13:17:19] POP3> STAT

[13:17:19] POP3< +OK 0 0

[13:17:19] POP3> QUIT

[13:17:19] POP3< +OK Bye-bye.

[13:23:04] IMAP4> 21 NOOP

[This is a failure] :angry: :angry: :angry:

[14:09:57] POP3< +OK Hello there.

[14:09:57] POP3> STLS

[14:09:57] POP3< -ERR TLS support not available.

*** couldn't start TLS session

*** Error occurred while processing mail.

I am using claws-mail on a FreeBSD-6.3 machine, although that should not make any difference. If it works one time, it should work all the time.

We have several machines in a load-balancing fault-tolerant system. It looks like STLS was not enabled on at least one machine. I've changed this and I think it should work across the system now.
