The company that I use for my ISP (I think it's Spectrum) made some changes to their email system and now I can't email anyone. But incoming email is fine. Here's the error: Server SSL certificate rejected. Can I turn this off so I can send emails? Any help would be awesome.

    What email client are you using now? Is it IMAP/POP3? Have you contacted your mail administrator or the person who cares all about that? Why they changed it suddenly? Have they informed you before changing all of these? It seems that some kind of configuration is necessary to make it enable and this requires admin rights. It is better to contact to your system administrator/mail administrator for this issue.

    What OS, browser and email service are you currently using? A lot of security is being tightened up over the next month or so with most browsers. A lot has to do with verifying the certificates that people were exploiting to hack systems. Provide some additional detail and we can see if we can help you out. Also list any anti virus and firewall software you may be running. I recently had a lot of issue with a firewall app stopping form going to some sites in one browser. The sites worked fine in all the other browsers. So this may be a tricky issue to solve.

    What (server) are you sending emails to? If it's your own server, then you can accept a self-signed certificate (what I'm assuming is going on). Otherwise, I wouldn't do it. You'll need to contact their tech support.
