Update of mail clients

The Yandex.Mail security team has discovered that using outdated versions of the following client applications can leave your email account vulnerable to unauthorized access and loss of private data: Microsoft Outlook, Apple Mail Thunderbird, and The Bat!.

As a result, starting April 25, 2016,Yandex.Mail will no longer support:

  • Microsoft Outlook version 2007 and older;
  • The Bat! version 3.9 and lower;
  • Thunderbird version 37 and lower;
  • Apple Mail version 3.1 and lower.
Why older versions are unsafe
TLS encoding certificates used in older versions are signed with an unsafe SHA-1 algorithm. This algorithm has been replaced in newer versions by SHA-256, which provides a greater level of security in connections between mail clients and the Yandex.Mail servers.

To continue using Yandex.Mail with your mail client, follow these instructions.
