SMTP Server Configuration dialog box

Use this dialog box to configure SMTP Server settings.

Option Description

This is a required field.

Test Click this button to verify connectivity to the server address you entered.

The default port number is 25.

This server requires an encrypted connection Select this check box if a server that you want to connect requires a secure connection.

When this check box is selected, the default port number is 465.

Requires authentication Select this check box to perform authentication on SMTP server.
User name The user name used in conjunction with the password field when authenticating with the SMTP server.

You may specify the user name via RRTs.

Password The password used in conjunction with the user name field when authenticating with the SMTP server.

You may specify the password using RRTs. In this case, make sure that the Encrypted check box is cleared, because otherwise the RRT value will be encrypted in the configuration and will be treated as a plain password.

This field supports and returns values for encrypted by restricted RRTs. For more information, see Encrypted Field RRTs.

Encrypted Select this check box to encrypt the password.

When this check box is selected, the value specified in Password is encrypted in the configuration and is displayed in the field in the standard protected form (with asterisks symbols '*'). Otherwise, this value is neither encrypted, nor protected with asterisks.

Note: Users should use password encryption only with static passwords. If you are using RRTs to define dynamic passwords, then the literal RRT string is encrypted.
Log on using NTLM authentication Select this check box to use credentials of the user, who runs the workflow server, to connect to the SMTP server.

If this check box is cleared, the component will try to use the most secure authentication type supported by both the SMTP server and the component. The component supports the following authentication types:

  • LOGIN
  • PLAIN
  • CRAM-MD5
  • NTML
