    Some SMTP servers require computers that connect to them to provide a certificate proving their identity. For accounts that don't support secure authentication, let Mail use a non-encrypted version of your user name and password to connect to the mail server.

    TLS - Transport Layer Security - primarily provides privacy and data integrity between two or more communicating computer applications. (web browsers, emails...)

    It's important to use TLS (or SSL) with your email setup because unsecure email is a common attack vector for the bad guys. Anyone who intercepts encrypted emails is left with garbage text that they can't do anything with, because only the email server and client have the keys to decode the messages.

    This is key for ensuring the protection of user names, passwords, personal details, and other sensitive information that's often found in emails. If an attacker discovers a weakness, they will exploit it for as long as they can and mine data that will be sold on the black market.

    TLS is the preferred encryption method because it's newer and offers more robust security features than SSL does.

    It's also a good idea to combine TLS-based email encryption with email authentication to ensure the integrity of email messages.
