Never saw a port 25 that wanted to use SSL, but in checking, Sympatico apparently does.

  1. Has this account ever worked? Did this just start?
  2. Is this the exact verbatim error message? If not, copy & paste it in a reply.
  3. Did you try to send a message and is the message stuck in the Outbox?
