SMPT send problem with port 465/587

Post by sirwhale »

We are checking madExcept in plans to buy new version.

If we setup no encryption and port 25 all is fine mail is send.
But if change to 465 SSL or 587 TLS it fail with message (Helo filed)

I thought there is problem with mail server configuration but when i put same settings in Outlook i send mails fine
