To Set TLS Encryption Levels for the Server

   1. Start IIS Manager or open the Internet IIS snap-in.
   2. Expand Server_name, where Server_name is the name of the server.
   3. Right-click the SMTP virtual server that you want (for example, Default SMTP Virtual Server), and then click Properties.
   4. Click the Access tab, and then under Access control, click Authentication.
   5. Click Basic authentication.
   6. Click to select the Requires TLS encryption check box.
   7. Click OK two times.
   8. Quit IIS Manager or close the IIS snap-in.

NOTE: Two additional TLS options are available. To use TLS for all outgoing connections, click Outbound Security on the Delivery tab, and then click to select the TLS encryption check box. Also, if a server to which you frequently connect requires the use of TLS for all incoming connections, you can create a remote domain, and then configure TLS encryption for the remote domain.
