Fixed In Version: evolution-data-server-2.32.3-22.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
The Evolution client could not connect to a mail server using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol when the server had SSL disabled due to the POODLE vulnerability. With this update, the Evolution Data Server has been modified to also connect using the Transport Layer Security (TLSv1) protocol, thus fixing this bug.

Description Milan Crha 2014-11-12 15:16:10 UTC
(Kind of a clone of bug #1153723.)

IMAP works fine, but NNTP, SMTP and POP3 are affected, which I missed.

> This comes from a Fedora bug #1153052, where is reported that Evolution
> cannot connect to mail (like IMAP) server using SSL when the server has
> the SSL disabled due to the CVE-2014-3566 POODLE (see bug #1152789 even
> this is not related to openssl as such).
> The fedora bug contains a fix which can be added into RHEL7 too and fix
> an error like:
>   Could not connect to 'server:993': Cannot communicate securely with peer:
>   no common encryption algorithm(s).

Comment 4 George Reeke 2015-02-27 19:11:33 UTC
To the quality assurance people:
were provided to me for testing in my RedHat 6.6 64-bit
environment where I have the standard distribution version
of evolution, currently evolution-2.32.3-34.el6.x86_64.
This is to let you know that the new version of
evolution-data-server resolved my problem with getting
POP email from a server that disabled SSLv3 and has
worked for a week now with no problems.  So apparently
the 64-bit version is also OK.
Thanks from an end user,
George Reeke
