Note: Email messages can be sent through a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server via two types of SSL—explicit or implicit.
- Explicit SSL: Paladin Point of Sale only supports sending email messages via explicit SSL. This means
that an unencrypted connection to the SMTP issues a command to start using encryption before it authenticates the server and sends the email. Port 587 is usually the default port. However, your internet service provider (ISP) may provide other ports.
- Implicit SSL: Paladin Point of Sale does not support sending email messages via implicit SSL. If you are trying to send email messages via port 465, it indicates that your ISP is probably set up to communicate implicit SSL to the SMTP server. This process is similar to HTTPS (a web browser) encrypting communication before it is transmitted via the email client and the server.
If you receive an email message stating that you use an SMTP server with SSL on port 465, try to use port 587 instead. If using port 587 does not work, contact your email provider to see if it has an alternative SMTP port with SSL enabled.
