    For some reason I skipped class on this and a customer is adamant about using ssl for his email client.

    he said he used these settings before:

    POP server = mail.domain.com
    POP port 995 with SSL enabled

    SMTP server = mail.domain.com
    SMTP port 465 with SSL enabled

    Can I continue using SSL ports when sending and receiving email?
    Regardless, please tell me the settings I sould be using:

    POP server =
    POP port =
    SSL enabled?

    SMTP server =
    SMTP port =
    SSL enabled?

    Do I need to add something for these ssl ports to work for email?

    THANKS for any help on this!

    Your ports and settings in the first post seem correct. I have checked the box for I need authentication and mine works fine. I have not done the stable upgrades yet from this weekend so I am at:
    WHM 11.23.2 cPanel 11.23.6-S27225
    CENTOS Enterprise 5.2 x86_64 on virtuozzo - WHM X v3.1.0

    SMTP server = mail.domain.com
    SMTP port 465 with SSL enabled

    These settings still work for me!
