Subject [jira] [Created] (INFRA-7093) apache.org mail servers should support TLS
Date Sat, 14 Dec 2013 00:05:07 GMT

--------------------------------

             Summary: apache.org mail servers should support TLS
                 Key: INFRA-7093
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-7093
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Mail (qmail)
            Reporter: Ben Reser


There really is no great reason not to have TLS setup on at least the hosts in the MX record.
 While obviously end to end encryption with GPG is better, having TLS setup is better than
nothing.

Searching for existing issues on this didn't find much but I did find this issue:
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-5440

The response there seems to be that the certificate available isn't licensed for mail server
use.  Surely this isn't an impossible thing to overcome.  If nothing else StartCom offers
free SSL certificates.
