Description

In System > Email there's a "Security" popup with choices:

- Plain
- SSL
- TLS

It's not clear what these refer to. The confusion is excellently summarized here:

https://www.fastmail.com/help/technical/ssltlsstarttls.html

I suggest renaming them to something like:
- No encryption
- implicit TLS
- STARTTLS

BTW: the default shouldn't be no encryption!

Analogous request for the LDAP case:

I'm not familiar with what each of the 'categories' in your redmine mean, but I'm more interested in the GUI being changed than only the docs. (changing the GUI probably requires changing the docs of course, but not vice versa.)

#5 Updated by Dru Lavigne almost 3 years ago

Sean: the docs team will update the tooltips and applicable Guide entry.

But I'm not talking about the tooltips either. It's the actual popup menu that (I think) needs to change, see attached image.

Updating the tooltip and docs would be a bonus, but was not my meaning/purpose for this ticket.

#7 Updated by Dru Lavigne almost 3 years ago

Yes, still the docs team :-)
