My corporate mail server requires all connections use SSL. How can I configure my Virtual Center's SMTP settings to make use of port 443? I cannot find any detailed documentation for SMTP configuration. My VC is v2.5 update 3.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Currently there is no way to configure this in VirtualCenter. You can’t specify a custom port and you can’t use SSL and authentication for SMTP. What you will have to do as a workaround is send alarms using SNMP forwarding to a system that can receive them and then send an email. You can also try setting up a SMTP forwarder using IIS where you can send the alerts to from your VC server on port 25 which could then forward them using SSL to your email servers.
