Hi Guys !

What do i have to install and configure in order to enable SSL encryption in the postfix mail server.  My server is Redhat 7.3 (intel).  Once it is working, the old way (plain text) will be working too ? or only SSL mode.  Does it mean that outlook will be configured with "secure password option"

Is this option confident to use it out of the firewall or is better to block the 110 port from outside to the server ?

Thanks !

what should be SSL?
reading mailboxes? or delivering to mailboxes too?
The later will be difficult.

Reading mailboxes can be done with IMAP and SSL/TLS.
POP cannot do it (in a simple manner).

There you can find information of how to setup SSL for postfix.
It works with my current setup wich follows that howto.

For TLS you can use:
http://postfix.state-of-mind.de/patrick.koetter/smtpauth/ with this as a supplement http://www.homeport.org/~adam/starttls.html

and you will find more usefull docs for postfix + SSL/TLS right here:
