MS Exchange Server 2003: Disabling SSL for a particular POP3 box.
Posted on 2006-06-30
I have an application written in-house that our marketing dept. uses to send out weekly eNewsletters. The distribution list has grown rapidly. I have all the eNewsletters getting sent out with one email address as the from address, email@example.com. This email address has a corresponding Exchange account and all our Exchange accounts are accessible via POP3. I need to handle bounced emails to this from address. The problem is our network admin has required SSL access to access the mailboxes via POP3 and we cannot turn the SSL requirment off globally. I am looking at a utility, BoogiePOP from boogietools.com, that looks like it will do everything I need it to do as far as handling the bounced emails. The catch is, they do not support SSL. I contacted their tech support and the answer I got was "We think there is a way to disable the SSL requirements on an account by account basis, but we do not know how." I have asked my network admin if he knew of a way to make this work by disabling SSL requirements for a particular box and we can't seem to be able to figure it out. Any help will be greatly appreciated as there are currently 30,000 emails in this box and I realy want to purge the bounces. If I did not do a good job explaining the situation let me know and I will try to clarify. Thanks.
