11.0.1 smtp ssl

Hi, i have a problem with smtp configuration.
My smtp server must use ssl and port 465 but when I go for the test I receive this error: TLS Module ::: The e-mail server [out.postassl.it] is not reachable at port [465]
if I configure the account on outlook send quietly

below the configuration string:
1;out.postassl.it:465;mymail@mydomain.com;myuser@mydomain.com;mypassword;yes;TLS;0

the error is :

Re: 11.0.1 smtp ssl

The statement

The e-mail server [out.postassl.it] is not reachable at port [465]

Has nothing to do with the host responding to pings.
Finding out why is part of your general learning curve.

As a hint: ICMP and TCP are different protocols. The message is stating port TCP 465 is not reachable, so some firewall must be blocking it somewhere between your ESXi host and the SMTP server itself. It's not the ESXi firewall, as XSIBackup opens up the SMTP port automatically.

Re: 11.0.1 smtp ssl

I not have any firewall.
