For your information, while SSLv3 has been disabled on IETF web servers, it has still been enabled on mail transport. The tools is taking action to disable SSLv3 even on mail transport. After this, all IETF web and mail servers support only TLS-based transport on secure connections.

If you have any feedback regarding this, let me or the tools team know.
