To use email with Secure Socket Layer / Transport Layer Security,
the SSLConfig field must contain the name of
an existing SSL/TLS Configuration of the Client type. You can create one using the
System Management Portal [Security Management] > [SSL/TLS Configurations] page.
If your SSL Configuration requires you to supply a password when connecting, specify it in the SSLConfig field by
adding a '|' after the configuration name, followed by the password string;
for example: MySSLItem|mypassword
When you specify a value in the SSLConfig field, the normal case is that
outbound email will open a socket on default port 465 and use SMTP over TLS/SSL.
The SSLConfig field also supports the special case when you want the server interaction
to begin on a normal TCP socket and then switch to SSL/TLS on the same port as the
normal socket. (RFC3207 provides the details.) In this case the default port is 25 for SMTP.
To use this convention, append '*' to your entry in the SSLConfig field;
for example: MySSLItem* or: MySSLItem|mypassword*
