Title: No SSL-TLS for email - only STARTTLS
Post by: Watcher on July 07, 2018, 07:14:53 AM
As 2670L inherits the firmware of 2332L, it also inherits one annoying feature - no SSL-TLS option on the email server setup. There is only the following checkbox option:
[ ] This server requires a secure connection (StartTLS)

YandexMail, which I am using as my primary email provider, does not support STARTTLS - only the explicit SSL-TLS on port 465. I've tried several other ports suggested in this article, that details the history behind SSL-TLS vs STARTTLS, to no avail:

Why can't D-Link standardise their firmware bases?

So far I have 3 groups:

For the last group one work-around is to set up a Gmail account, which supports the less explicit STARTTLS and then configure YandexMail to pull the messages from Google, using IMAP protocol. However, I'd really like to avoid the Google ecosystem due to lack of trust in them.
