Hi, you probably used newer version of Claws Mail on your other system.
Version 3.9.3 you are using now has trouble connecting to some servers
which have disabled SSLv3 protocol in favor of TLSv1 and newer.

I strongly suggest upgrading to at least version 3.11.1, but ideally to
the latest version 3.13.2. If you can not upgrade you should be able use
one of the workarounds described in
