did the best to improve the configuration but the possibilities are very limited because the community webmail system is still on Apache 2.2.3/Debian Etch and does not support modern TLS versions or cipher suites.

At least we get a grade B at ssllabs now.

Debian 4.0 Etch had received official support until 15 Feb 2010 - which is nearly five years ago! Hm, if this system isn't actually used/maintained by anybody, there might be someone to press the "big red button" for it...

I just saw on that pressing the "red button" is not a good idea.

From a today's point of view the SSL/TLS configuration is still not satisfying. But the main cause and source of problems (also the ones of this bug) is the VERY OLD system. So, I leave this bug open with stomach pains :-)

However, thanks, Jan, for digging so deep in this issue.
