Microsoft Exchange 2013 - SSL/TLS
- These instructions assume you have already setup your AuthSMTP send connector in Exchange 2013 using the instructions on the Exchange 2013 setup page .
- Microsoft Exchange 2013 has a feature called 'Opportunistic TLS' which is enabled by default upon installation, this feature means Exchange 2013 will try to negotiate a secured SSL/TLS session wherever possible and encrypt the message.
- By default SSL/TLS is not enabled on AuthSMTP accounts.
- If you do wish to use SSL/TLS please login to the control panel and enable it on your account.
- If you do not wish to use SSL/TLS you will need to take the following steps to disable this feature in Exchange 2013.
- Open the 'Exchange Management Shell'
- Type the following command to get a list of all your send connectors
- To disable 'Opportunistic TLS' you will need to enter the following command
Set-SendConnector -Identity "AuthSMTP Connector" -IgnoreSTARTTLS $true
- To confirm the change has been accepted you can enter the following command
Get-SendConnector "AuthSMTP Connector"|fl IgnoreSTARTTLS
- You should now be able to send messages via AuthSMTP without Exchange 2013 trying to negotiate a SSL/TLS connection.
