| Hello everybody.
Here is a fan of Xmail since 2003.
I'm running Xmail 1.27 on Windows with latest openssl (1.1.0g 2 Nov 2017).
I've setup SSL configuration (server.key, server.cert, server.tab, ...) and I'm able to connect through STARTTLS / SSL from several clients (Thunderbird, Android Mail, K9-Mail...).
Everything works fine but now TLS 1.0 is obsolete (and insecure). So I'm interested to setup a TLS 1.2.
With the following command we are able to see our SSL capabilities:
openssl s_client -connect mail.myxmailserver.com:25 -starttls smtp
My Xmail server ciphers connection with TLS1.0 as seen here:
On the other way, Gmail servers answer to same command with a nice TLS1.2, see now:
openssl s_client -connect smtp.gmail.com:25 -starttls smtp
This is a MUST to send crypted email to masive servers as Gmail or Outlook. Now, even with a perfect setup we are sending emails though plain text because remote servers drops TLS1.0. This scenario implies loss of reputation and go to spam folder.
I guess how could we force Xmail to negotiate TLS 1.2.
I don't know if this kind of feature relies on openssl or is managed by Xmail executable.
Will be this issue enough to see a new release...? I will love a Xmail 1.28....
Thanks for your time.

| I was also wondering this. I downloaded the source code from Davide's site and confirmed I could build it (from a Visual Studio Developer Command Prompt). I updated the OpenSSL libraries, but it would not build with the latest version. Unfortunately I don't know C++ so this is as far as I got.
There was some talk earlier in the year about setting up the source on Github and bringing it up to date, but this seems to have been forgotten too
