    I was able to send mail using Thunderbird and SSL Port 995 until I upgraded MySQL from 40 to 50 on my Cpanel installation today. Any idea whet might have changed when I made that change in Tweak Settings?

    I get connection refused. The funny thing is that I can still check mail over ssl on 495.

    I didn't make any changes to my firewall.

    Is the port still open?

    Try telnet mail.server.com 995

    Not sure.

    telnet host.foo.com 995
    Trying 66.xx.xxx.xx...
    telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

    I then took a look at my firewall rules and I seem to have the port open. How do I check that Exim/MailScanner is binding to that port to accept mail there?

    Resolution.

    After reaching out to Chirpy's group they figured out restarting the cpanel service would do the trick.

    We are now happily POPing email on 995 SSL.

    Thanks, Jonathan!
