    Hi @jason_isl,

    Sorry to hear you're facing issues with an outdated mail client. I'd recommend updating the client or OS to ensure that it's using modern and secure ciphers/protocols; however, I understand that can be difficult. In cPanel 68, on new servers, we updated the cipher list:
    68 Release Notes - Version 68 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    You may try setting the old ciphers below at WHM > Service Configuration > Mailserver Configuration: SSL Cipher List:
    Code:
    ECDHE-ECDSA-CHACHA20-POLY1305:ECDHE-RSA-CHACHA20-POLY1305:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:DHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:DHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES128-SHA256:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-SHA256:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES128-SHA:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA384:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-SHA:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-SHA384:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-SHA:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA:DHE-RSA-AES128-SHA256:DHE-RSA-AES128-SHA:DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA256:DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA:AES128-GCM-SHA256:AES256-GCM-SHA384:AES128-SHA256:AES256-SHA256:AES128-SHA:AES256-SHA:!DSS
    
    However, realize that this decreases your security for all users.

    Thanks,
