Alpine/IMAP/SSL and new Debian 9

Postby bflmpsvz » 2017-08-03 10:04

I have been using Pine and Alpine for years on Windows XP. Now our mailserver was upgraded from Debian 8 (Jessie) to Debian 9 (Stretch) and Alpine says
"There was an SSL/TLS failure for the server".
I suppose, that Windows XP are reason for this. My colleague has the same version of Alpine (2.20) with the same configuration on Windows 7 and has
no problem. Moreover, Debian release notes say "The 3DES and RC4 ciphers are no longer available for TLS/SSL communication. ... This means that OpenSSL and Windows XP share no common cipher. "
So my questions are:

1) Does the Alpine rely on system regarding SSL/TLS? (Thunderbird has no problem on Windows XP against Debian 9, tested versions, 38.5.0, 45.8.0, 52.2.1)

2) If so, is there any way how to allow Alpine work against Debian 9 on Windows XP?
My configuration for IMAP is like . While Thunderbird is able to connect with our mailserver using SSL/TLS or STARTTLS, no different setting of Alpine was successful...
