Thanks falco, I had it set that way so I thought your answer was simplistic. Well, I went back and checked it and the check mark by "Server requires authentication" was gone.... DUH!!! I feel so dumb because I just knew in my mind that the check mark was there because it was and had been working. I can't imagine how it got removed. Oh well! It works now I and I thank you for helping me.
Any ideas on the version error on the ssl? I ran update on everything yesterday but it didn't help.
