"Request for Enhancement" : ability to do explicit SSL ("SSL is optional") be added to the SMTP Send Adapter
We are trying to use the SMTP Send adapter( for Sterling B2B Integrator 6.x version) to connect Office 365 server using port 587, and realized that Sterling could not able make a connection, as SMTP Send adapter supports only two options " SSL cannot be used" and "SSL must be used" (Implicit option) . In that regard we opened a ticket with IBM Support and team found out that existing SMTP Send Adapter does not support explicit option that is "SSL is optional" feature and which supports to connect Office365 server for port 587. So IBM suggested us an open RFE request to get this feature.
As this feature is very much needed, please provide us the solution as early as possible
