09 Apr SSL – Email Settings Review
Action Required: Change in Email Settings
Please ensure that your email address is set up with SSL settings
As part of ongoing efforts to keep all email accounts secure, we will be requiring that all accounts set up with a third-party mail client (ie. Outlook) be done so in a specific way that is explained below.Currently, accounts are allowed to be set up with “plaintext authentication” (unsecured) to send and receive email. Beginning April 13th, 2016, these unsecured connections will no longer be allowed to ensure that email is secure on the server and passwords are not compromised.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR ME?
You will need to check your email address settings before April 13, 2016 to ensure that the settings you have match the following and are set to SSL or TLS (secured connection):
User name: *your email address*
Password: *your password*
Incoming Server: pass94.dizinc.com
If it is an IMAP account, set port to 993
If it is a POP3 account, set port to 995
Outgoing Server: pass94.dizinc.com
SMTP Port: 465
