What is SSL and TLS and how do I figure out if my mail server has this?

Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Socket Layer (SSL) are security protocols that encrypt the email data from the mail server to your PC. Your IT Department, ISP or mail provider can inform you if you are using TLS or SSL encryption.
