low security on tpg pop3 accounts

Why is tpg still using STARTTLS for email rather than SSL/TLS. In the new version of Thunderbird this option has been removed and therefore it's not possible to use with tpg's pop3 accounts anymore. Also Microsoft, Mozilla and Google have all deprecated the old security protocol.

How long befor this is fixed and why has TPG support been so lax in not alerting users to this serious issue.

having an 'excuse' os 'we dont support 3rd party email products'  hardly cuts it when we are talking of a product as popular as Thunderbird and a company the size of TPG.

Time to lift your support game.
