While browsing the faq, I found this question in the documentation:

Q: Eudora 5.x can't connect using STARTTLS ("SSL Neogotiation Failed").
What should I do?

    A: First, complain to QUALCOMM because their STARTTLS implementation
is broken. Eudora doesn't support TLSv1 (per RFC2246) and Cyrus requires
it. If you really need this before it is fixed in Eudora, remove or
comment out the following lines in tls.c:

    if (tlsonly) {
        off |= SSL_OP_NO_SSLv2;
        off |= SSL_OP_NO_SSLv3;

What kind of side effects does making this change have?  Undesirables?
