 +======ISP needs SSL connection======
  
 +A few ISPs use a non-standard and not recommended system of encrypting connections to their SMTP mail servers. These generally are called '​SSL'​ connections and work on an alternate port other than the standard SMTP port 25. (The correct way to encrypt connections is to use a system called TLS which works on the standard SMTP port).
 +
 +To use the non-standard method, in the SMTP Relay Servers box, type the SMTP relay server name, followed by **:<​alternate port number>​**,​ eg **smtp.isp.com:​465**
 +
 +Then, in the **Session Encryption** box at the bottom of the page, choose **SSL**
