STARTTLS and emails

  Dobba 19:55 09 Jul 2008

For some reason, I cannot use my laptop to send e-mails as the warning message says "needs STARTTLS" which I understand has something to do with encryption.
I do not need/require encryption in my emails and I assume that I have accidentally asked for it without knowing.
Can anyone explain what is going on and how I remove the need for STARTTLS?

Windows version and email client would have been helpful - go into SMTP settings and untick TLS.
