You are strongly advised to upgrade.
3.11.1 is over 4 years old, there have been 13 releases since.
For details of the changes, see https://claws-mail.org/NEWS

The label 'SSL' does refer to TLS.
At the time 'SSL' was a much more readily understood acronym, (and
also a hangover from when claws-mail used openSSL rather than gnuTLS
it uses now). Currently we are transitioning the UI, it currently says
'SSL/TLS', in future it will just say 'TLS'.
