SMTP notifications over SSL?



  • Hi,
    First day with pfsense. I'm trying to configure SMTP notifications. My mail server is behind a NAT on 10.10.10.2 and uses SSL on port 62933. I can connect to the SSL service over telnet from pfsense, but the pfsense gui says "Could not send the message to user@host.localdomin – Error: could not connect to the host "10.10.10.2": ??

    Do I need to load the SMTP cert (self-signed) into pfsense somehow?

    If a self-signed cert is being used, yes it will have to be trusted by pfSense.  There is a thread or two in the forums that should have enough how to info.
