On February the 12th 2020 we disabled the deprecated protocols TLS 1.0 and 1.1 in Dovecot (POP3, POP3S, IMAP, IMAPS) and Postfix (SMTPS, SUBMISSION).

Unauthenticated mail via SMTP on port 25/tcp does still accept >= TLS 1.0 . It is better to accept a weak encryption than none at all.

How to re-enable weak protocols?

Edit data/conf/postfix/extra.cf:

submission_smtpd_tls_mandatory_protocols = !SSLv2, !SSLv3
smtps_smtpd_tls_mandatory_protocols = !SSLv2, !SSLv3

Edit data/conf/dovecot/extra.conf:

ssl_min_protocol = TLSv1

Restart the affected services:

docker compose restart postfix-mailcow dovecot-mailcow
docker-compose restart postfix-mailcow dovecot-mailcow

Hint: You can enable TLS 1.2 in Windows 7.
