25.1 Configuring Outbound E-Mail with TLS over SMTP

Depending on how your e-mail application is configured, it may require that Vibe outbound e-mail be configured with TLS over SMTP for secure e-mail. Novell GroupWise, for example, can be configured to require this. If you are using GroupWise or another e-mail application that requires this type of configuration, you can configure Vibe with TLS over SMTP by using STARTTLS.

NOTE:In the Vibe installation program, on the Outbound E-Mail Configuration page, ensure that you have selected SMTP in the Protocol drop-down list. For more information about outbound e-mail configuration in the Vibe installation program, see Gathering Outbound E-Mail Information in the Novell Vibe 3.3 Installation Guide.

To configure outbound e-mail with TLS over SMTP:

  1. Import the certificate from the e-mail server into the Vibe Java keystore file (cacerts).

    The default location for the Java keystore file is:




    c:\Program Files\Java\jdkversion\jre/lib/security

  2. Change to the following directory:




    c:\Program Files\Novell\Teaming\apache-tomcat\
  3. Open the ssf.xml file in a text editor.

  4. Add the following attribute to the resource node that begins with <Resource name=”mail/SiteScapePool” (this is the first resource node in the list):

  5. (Optional) To enable tracing of sent e-mail to assist with debugging mail issues, add the following attribute to the same resource node:

  6. Stop and restart Vibe.
