App does not support startTLS

  • it seems this app does not support start tls.
    When accessing a server with ssl disabled it issues an sslv3 error message
    ssl handshake aborted. Failure in ssl library
    routines:SSL23 get server helo : sslv3

    ssl is disabled on my server due to current bugs in ssl.

    Thanks for your report. Please read Reporting issues and provide all information mentioned there, including detailled steps to reproduce the issue, client and server software details, and verbose logs.

    The steps to reproduce are most important, because I really don't know whats the problem.

  • sorry, this was a server side issue. We disabled the sslv3 related ciphers in addition to disabling the protocol. Reenabling (most of ) the ciphers solved the issue.
    Strangely not all andoid apps were affected (e.g. K-9mail and firefox browser worked fine; only stock browser and some other apps fell into this problem)
