When I try to send a mail message through my SMTP server at mail.speakeasy.org I get an error message that "You cannpt connect to mail.speakeasy.org because SSL is disabled." followed by "Sending of message failed. The message could not be sent because connecting to the SMTP server failed. The server may be unavailable or is refusing SMTP connections. Please verify that your SMTP server setting is correct and try again, or else contact your network administrator." I have checked the Preferences settings and they all indicate that SSL is enabled. I also get a message about permissions on the Preferences folder, but that also appears to be OK. My Netscape 4.79 and Outlook Express mail clients both work fine.
Reporter: Can you visit https pages like https://www.ccc.de ?
->PSM. Do we support connecting to mail servers via SSL?
Reporter, I just tried from within Netscape (obviously relaying is not turned off at mail.speakeasy.net) and successfully sent mail messages over SMTP/SSL and SMTP. However, I see a warning indicating that mail.speakeasy.org is an alias for mail.speakeasy.net ... continue anyway? (impostor dialog). After accepting, mail goes through and is received by me at my netscape account. I would check the following conditions: 1. Are you going through proxies and are they set up on the other clients 2. How does it work if you connect to mail.speakeasy.net instead of mail.speakeasy.org 3. Verify the the SSL settings are set on both server settings and outgoing server. Verify that SMTP port is blanked out. Let me know if you still have the problem after trying these things so we can close this or pursue it further.
Turned out this was a problem in mrigration of profiles - for whatever reason, the secmod db file wasn't working with NS7.0. After deleting secmod.db, the client worked as designed. PSM can't actually fix this, and profile migration most likely needs a utility/architectural change to correct all bugs of this nature. So this bug is closed.
