Help with scan to email configuration in Server 2012 Essentials and Office 365

Hello Experts,

Here is the situation I’m working through.  I have setup a Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials server that is integrated with my Office 365 subscription.  I have a multifunction device (Xerox 7545) that I need to configure the scan to email functionality.  I configured an SMTP relay via IIS on my server.  I have configured my Xerox to use the SMTP relay.  This is all working.  When I run the test SMTP settings, I receive my email as expected.  However, when I try to do the scan to email, I don’t get my scanned document.  I have called Xerox support and they mentioned that messages with attachments are getting dropped.  Where do I allow messages with attachments to be emailed?  Is this on the IIS SMTP relay or on a setting on Office 365 itself?  As always, any help would be appreciated.

Just in case, make sure to verify the correct setup of the SMTP relay with this article (i.e. TLS is mandatory): http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn554323.aspx

Review the IIS SMTP logs and check if there is something wrong in there. You can also run a message trace on O365 to make sure the messages are not being dropped there. But I vaguely remember others complaining about the same issue with Xerox devices, unfortunately I'm not able to find the thread...

If I remember correctly, they updated the requirements and then it stopped working. I believe the device needs to support at least TLS 1.2 for it to work. Make sure to check the IIS logs :)
