SSL Negotiation Failed

SSL Negotiation Failed

SSL Negotiation Failed


Version: Eudora 5
When downloading emails I get this error msg"SSL Negotiation failed, You have configured this personality/protocol to reject any exchange key lengths below 0.But the negotiation exchange key length is -1".
How to get rid of this and download emils again


RE: SSL Negotiation Failed

Try this:

Go into Tools | Options | Checking Mail

Set Secure Sockets when receiving to If Available.  If that's what it's set @ now, set it to never.

You can do the same thing to the Sending Mail options.

Let me know if that doesn't help.
