[Micronet] [Announce] Google has disabled support for SSLv3 and RC4 for Gmail SMTP servers

Jen Bellenger
Dear Micronet,

Google has disabled support for SSLv3 and RC4 for Gmail SMTP servers and on Gmail's web servers effective June 16, 2016. We've published a (belated) post on the bConnected site and are sharing this information with you in case there are any campus users impacted by this change. 

Here are the reasons described by Google below:
If you are still using SSLv3 or RC4: 
  • Google recommends reviewing the suggested actions in the Security Blog announcement and updating to modern TLS configurations
  • Some common systems that may still be using SSLv3: inbound/outbound gateways, third-party emailers, and systems using SMTP relay
Servers sending messages via SSLv3 and RC4 will no longer be able to exchange mail with Google’s SMTP servers, and some users using older and insecure mail clients won't be able to send mail. 

You can also read Google's original announcement on their Security Blog for additional details for the change.
