Additional notes

Other settings may also work.

Note that selecting TLS, STARTTLS or SSL adds encryption between the mail server and your email client adding an extra level of security. This, however, will not automatically guarantee that your email communications will remain encrypted when they move anywhere else beyond our server.

When sending emails to people you know, one way of guaranteeing that your communications are encrypted is to use a PGP key.
