Does JS> anyone else know? TLS is the Transport Layer Security protocol. The TLS protocol provides communications privacy over the Internet. The protocol allows client/server applications to communicate in a way that is designed to prevent eavesdropping, tampering, or message forgery. TLS and SSL are both supported by REBOL/Command. If your SMTP server requires a TLS connection, you are out of luck with just /Core or /View, unless you try to use tools like stunnel etc. Regards, Gabriele. -- Gabriele Santilli <[g--santilli--tiscalinet--it]> -- REBOL Programmer Amiga Group Italia sez.
