Email out - Using smtp with servers which require ssl


#1

Hi

Any ideas on how to connect to smtp email servers which only support SSL?

I notice a lot of lua programmers use luasec - but this uses C and the GX400 is a closed platform so I don’t think there is a way for me to install luasec myself - if there is a way (like the root user name and password :smiley: ) I would be very interested

Any help gratefully received

Well your analysis is correct. So the short answer is ‘not possible for now’ .
A possible workaround would be to use a proxy server that add the ssl layer before connection to your email server. Would that be possible in your use case ?

Maybe it would be better if the GX platform was a bit more open? It is just a standard Linux box - others could then contribute to the Lua functionality

Just an idea

Thanks
