Updated evolution-data-server packages fix connections to non SSLv3 servers Evolution in the default configuration is not able to use TLSv1 or higher for SSL connections - it only allows SSLv3 connections. When TLS is enabled in Evolution, it requires the server to support STARTTLS, which is not offered by all servers. Hence Evolution will fail on all servers where SSLv3 has been disabled after the recent POODLE vulnerability. This is mainly an issue for connecting to IMAP servers, but may also apply to POP3 or SMTP servers. The update corrects this issue.
