SSL is used to secure internet traffic between a website and a visitor. With an SSL certificate, you have an encrypted HTTPS connection. That ‘S’ is important because it stands for Security. Hackers have no chance of intercepting sensitive data. You can also use SSL to secure your mailbox.
What is ‘SSL mail’?
What does SSL mean in mail? There’s actually a pretty simple answer to that. You can also use a secure connection via SSL for your mailbox. This way, you ensure that cyber criminals cannot intercept your e-mails.
To establish such a secure SSL mail connection, you need to choose the right ports for your incoming and outgoing e-mails.
