BrightMail TLS

Hi,

We need to enable TLS via BrightMail to all traffic for a specific external domain. I'm not clear how exactly the CA certificate should be assigned on the BrightMail system. Can this be anything or does it need to match the source MX record? Would like to use the Self Signed certiticate option.

To clarify, should the certificate match the MX record or the hostname?

Hello,

The name of your certificate must match the hostname of your server. Also, you will not be able to use a self-signed certificate to communicate with an external partner.

Hi,

I used a Self Signed cert using the PTR and it works great. Brightmail has 3 options (optional, force without verification and force with varification). Self Cert with force\ without varification does the trick.

Thanks for your input though!

This case can be closed.
