Check the SSL tab in current accounts preferences. Off the Configuration
drop down



Back here at work, I started Sylpheed 3.1.2 and at the top menu bar,
selected Configuration --> Preferences for Current Account ...

The Account Preferences window that comes up has 5 tabs:
- Basic
- Receive
- Send
- Compose
- Proxy
- Advanced

On the Basic tab, in the Server information section at the bottom, I have selected
Protocol IMAP4 and entered the correct parameters.

On the Receive tab in the IMAP4 section, the Authentication method gives me
four choices:
      - Automatic
      - LOGIN
      - PLAIN
      - CRAM-MD5
But nothing that says SLS/TLS.

The Send, Compose, and Proxy tabs have nothing relevant.

On the Advanced tab, I have set the IMAP port to 993 as requested by the Thunderbird

My sylpheed.log file has multiple entries that say,

[11:07:02] ** Sylpheed-CRITICAL: folderview_check_new_item: assertion `item != NULL' failed

My sylpheed accountrc has a line that says, "ssl_imap=0". Should I manually set this to 1?
