530 5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS command first
If you are using our email server test tool and you get an error about requiring a TLS command first, it means your server will only accept email over a secure connection.
Our website based testing tool is fairly simply, it just connects and tries to deliver a message. It does not check for encryption or attempts to send encrypted mail, so the testing tool will not work if your server requires encryption in order to accept a message.
Our real email servers will use encryption when attempting to deliver mail.
