How to update your Frontier Email security settings

We require SSL encryption to be enabled on every device used to check your Frontier Webmail account.

This adds email security to your account by automatically encrypting each email session and creating more secure connections between any devices you use to send emails.

  4. Check the box next to Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) then click OK
