Greetings,

TLS is enabled on my send connector (I believe that is by default). The send connector goes to our smart host (spam soap). I have the option to enable TLS on the smart host.

We are now required to implement TLS with a firm we work with. They use opportunistic and stated that we could do the same. When I run tests from checktls.com and mxtoolbox, I see that TLS is enabled on my end.

I guess my questions are

- Do these test results simply mean that I am able to use TLS, but it is not fully configured? Or is it fully functional so-to-speak?

-Does anyone know if I need to configure anything else, on spam soap or my 2010 server, for the emails from our server to the other firm to use TLS? I have not heard back from the other firm yet to test and spam soap sent me a link to a FAQ with no info regarding my question. I would like to be ready on my end when they are.

Thanks for any help

I see this in a header from one message sent from them to me yesterday. Does it mean TLS was used to transmit the message? Also, is .local on my servers a problem?

Thanks again
