By default, Metasys software encrypts your user name and password as they are entered into the SMP UI, but the software does not automatically encrypt email messages. This feature allows Engines to send email to email servers over a secure channel (secure socket layer [SSL]). The entire email payload is encrypted, and allows our software to communicate to email servers that require SSL connections.
- The SMTP port is different when using secure socket layer connections. This port is typically 465.
- To maximize efficiency when using this feature, set up mailing groups instead of individual users in the destination field to minimize the number of users to which the machine has to send email. This setup allows you to create different email groups and customize the type of messages that each user receives.
