Goal

The goal of this document is to explain how to configure XAI email Sender with TLS encryption in order to send an email from within the application.

It is possible to properly send emails in case of an unencrypted mail server (no TLS, no username or password are required). On the other hand, if the mail server requires username and password with TLS encryption, it is possible to configure the username and password required, but it is not possible to find any available configuration for TLS encryption usage.

ETPM uses JavaMail API (mail_api.jar) in order to send emails. In customer's case, the mail server uses an encrypted channel with TLS. JavaMail API provides a way to configure TLS encryption by setting the session’s property to:
properties.setProperty(“mail.smtp.starttls.enable”,”true”);

It is needed to find a way to enable the TLS encryption for sending emails within ETPM. For the time being, there is no configurable property that enables TLS.
