Hello,

on 5 Nov I received an email from my provider telekom.de
informing me that I use an insecure connection for my emails
and that from start of 2014 on ssl is required.
For my emails I use sendmail and getmail (and mutt/vi) so
I think ssl should be supported.

I changed the type from SimplePOP3Retriever to SimplePOP3SSLRetriever
in my $HOME/.getmail/getmailrc:

| [retriever]
| type = SimplePOP3SSLRetriever
| server = popmail.t-online.de
| username = ...
| password = ...


but with this I get only

| getmailrc: socket error ([Errno 61] Connection refused)

I described this in a detailed email to telekom.de (twice)
but didn't get any answer.

Can anyone please tell me what I'm doing wrong or explain
to me what I should do instead.


thanks in advance
Johannes-Maria
