Applies to:

Oracle Communications Connector for Microsoft Outlook - Version 7.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The used messaging setup :

Outlook is being used in combination with the Outlook Connector (OC) to get messages from Oracle Messaging Server.
We have a Perdition IMAP/POP proxy server in front of our Oracle Messaging Server. When using IMAP/POP in non-SSL mode, there is no problem - mail works properly. But, when we configure IMAP or POP in SSL mode, we are not able to access our mail.

From tests we've done, we know the problem does not occur with :

It seems that when using SSL on the proxy server, it forces the client to do SSL auth without a password?!
How can we configure OC to use standard IMAPS/POPS with password ?
