Useful Information to Remember

💡 Note: SFR Webmail no longer supports SSL and TLS 1.0 and 1.1 protocols. Users of SFR email clients should modify their connection settings to TLS 1.2 or TLS 1.3 protocols.

SFR recommends always using encrypted versions of the SMTP, POP, and IMAP protocols with the construction of household or public WiFi networks to ensure the secrecy of your communications and limit the chance of your email password getting stolen.

In the configuration indicated below on this page, the encrypted version (SSL/TLS) is thus systematically offered to ensure the confidentiality of your messages.

Be informed that whether you use SFR Webmail or the SFR Mail mobile application, they automatically use encrypted protocols to enhance the security of your communications and data.

It has also agreed to abide by the Charter for Email Security, which guarantees the confidentiality of email communications. Sending messages between SFR messaging platforms and other platforms belonging to the charter is done via encryption.

Finally, if you plan on accessing your mailbox from several devices, such as a work computer and a smartphone, IMAP is the preferable option.
