If you like Mozilla’s email client Thunderbird you may have downloaded and applied the recent 38.1.0 update and suddenly had a problem with sending and receiving secure mail, known as SSL.
Well take heart, it’s not you. It’s a conflict between Tbird and your mail server. The problem lies in the detection of the authentication methods supported by the mail server.

Cannot Fetch mail using IMAP and send mail using SMTP
Authentication Method Not Detected
An error occurred during a connection to mail host
