SMTP Smart-Host setup

Post by AmintaFZC »

We are trying to test MailEnable to replace current old email setup, we installed & configured the Standard Edition, all internally working fine.
Now we want to test sending outside emails, through the current cloud host for our email account as ISP is not providing static IP for our connection, but MailEnable is failing to connect & not clear on reason, our email client is able to connect successfully with same settings.
appreciate your help to clear this up so we can proceed to next steps.

Sorry, the smart host does not support sending over an SSL port, it can only currently use TLS to do the sending (i.e. connection over non-SSL, then uses STARTTLS to elevate this to secure). If you have version 10.47 of MailEnable Standard though you can add the following registry key:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Mail Enable\Mail Enable\CONNECTORS\SMTP]
"Forward All Outbound SSL"=dword:00000001

If you add this key and restart the SMTP service it will then connect to an SSL port.
