I opened claws-mail with the --debug option and routed the output to a
text file.  When I try to connect in the console I see this:

** (claws-mail:4725): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'GtkCMUnit'
as enum when in fact it is of type 'gint' ** Message: Account 'Tom
3e2a': Connecting to POP3 server: email.asianetrising.com...

** (claws-mail:4725): WARNING **: SSL connection failed (A TLS packet
with unexpected length was received.)

** (claws-mail:4725): WARNING **: can't initialize SSL.

** (claws-mail:4725): WARNING **: [14:49:01] SSL handshake failed

** (claws-mail:4725): WARNING **: [14:49:01] Connection failed.

In the text file there is a lot of stuff.  My best guess is this is the
relevant section:
progressdialog.c:62:Creating progress dialog...
inc.c:775:getting new messages of account Tom 3e2a...
ssl.c:216:waiting for SSL_connect thread...
ssl.c:234:SSL_connect thread returned -9
session.c:353:session (0xa9ed210): closed

As far as using the STARTTLS option - I have tried that but just
results in a "Connection Failed" error.

SMTP AUTH is set to automatic and it has my user id and password for
the smtp server.
