Acronis True Image Notifications sending via SMTP

Sometime after 2/23 multiple devices stopped sending backup notifications due to some change at Verizon on the SMTP server. I am starting to believe it is related to phasing out of weaker SSL ciphers.I say this because I attempted to use gmail and received a blocked attempt due to an "older application". I overrode the gmail security settings and now it works but the thought of changing every backup job on every PC is just ridiculous. Other applications can send notifications. I cannot afford to upgrade 10+ licenses of Acronis because Verizon changed settings.

Anyone have ideas of how to work around or fix this?

Or why Verizon would make changes and not let anyone know?
