It turned out that pressing "verify server settings" is what caused my
trouble as doing that changed the settings from TLS to SSL.
It's interesting how a thread like this can live on, 2 minutes after i
wrote my first mail I saw the mistake and wrote a reply to ignore the
mail and it still got replies.
Anyhow it's solved now. Thanks all.
