How to enable TLS 1.1 and 1.2 in Outlook on Windows 7

TLS protocol version 1.0 is not secure and as such needs to be disabled on our servers due to PCI compliance.

Due to this, when you try to establish a secure connection from your Outlook mail client to the WireNine servers, Outlook will display an error similar to this:
