Subject:Re: For Kevin : sending email from paradox with TLS via pdoxindy

I tried this on Win 7 64 bit, Pdox 9.  Same error as Kevin.  This error 
pops up immediately.
If I send without tls (didn't change the port) there is a longer delay 
and then:
"Erreur : La connexion s'est terminee propement."
