cnx-check-idle-time

Default Value: 00:00:30
Valid Values: Any valid time in hh:mm:ss format
Changes Take Effect: At start/restart


Specifies the amount of time an SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) connection can stay idle before E-mail Server checks to see whether the connection is really established. If the SMTP connection is idle for longer than the specified value, E-mail Server first sends a NOOP command to the SMTP server on the connection, before using the connection. With the value of 00:00:00, E-mail Server checks the connection each time before using it. However, this is an expensive operation, and some SMTP servers do not support it very well.

cnx-max-idle-time

Default Value: 00:05:00
Valid Values: Any time period in hh:mm:ss format
Changes Take Effect: At start/restart


Specifies the amount of time an SMTP connection can stay Idle before E-mail Server closes the connection.

Warning
Make sure the value of this option is less than the SMTP Server timeout value.

cnx-pool-size

Default Value: 10
Valid Values: Any integer greater than 0
Changes Take Effect: At start/restart


Specifies the pool size for the SMTP connection. This option sets the maximum number of messages SMTP can send in parallel.

connect-timeout

Default Value: 00:05:00
Valid Values: Any time period in the hh:mm:ss format
Changes Take Effect: Immediately


For the pop-client and smtp-client sections, specifies the timeout value for the socket connection. The timeout is raised if the connection to the server (corporate e-mail server for the pop-client section or SMTP server for the smtp-client section) cannot be established within the time specified for this option.

enable-authentication

Default Value: false
Valid Values: true, false
Changes Take Effect: Immediately


Enables the use of authentication with the corporate e-mail server. With a value of TRUE, the options "user" and "password" are used to log in to the corporate e-mail server.

enable-debug

Default Value: false
Valid Values: true, false
Changes Take Effect: Immediately


Enables or disables SMTP logging to the server's standard output. If this option is set to true, full protocol logs are displayed in the E-mail Server logs.

exchange-version

Default Value: No default value
Valid Values: A valid exchange server version, such as Exchange2010, Exchange2010_SP1, Exchange2010_SP2, Exchange2010_SP3, Exchange2013, Office365
Changes Take Effect: At the next POP cycle


Specifies the version of the Exchange corporate server.

password

Default Value:
Valid Values: A valid password
Changes Take Effect: At start/restart


Specifies the password used to connect to SMSC.

port

Default Value: 25
Valid Values: Any valid port number
Changes Take Effect: Immediately


Specifies the port number for connecting to the corporate e-mail server. Allows the port to be changed for access through a firewall.

protocol-timeout

Default Value: 00:05:00
Valid Values: Any time period in the hh:mm:ss format
Changes Take Effect: Immediately


Whether in the pop-client or smtp-client section, specifies the message timeout value. The timeout is raised if the corporate e-mail server does not reply to protocol messages sent to it within the time specified for this option. You may want to adjust the timeout value to handle large messages. If the timeout expires before a message has finished processing, the following may occur:
  • A large incoming message may be repeatedly resubmitted, blocking processing of all following messages. Prevent this by increasing the value for this option in the pop-client section.
  • A large outgoing message may result in a Send service failure. Prevent this by configuring this option in the smtp-client section.

server

Default Value:
Valid Values: Any valid host name or IP address
Changes Take Effect: Immediately


In the pop-client section, specifies the host name or IP address of the corporate e-mail server on which the account resides. In the smtp-client section, specifies the name of the corporate SMTP server. You set the value during E-mail Server setup.

Note: If connecting to Exchange Server with EWS, the value must be the EWS URL, not the host name or IP address.

server-type

Default Value: SMTP
Valid Values: SMTP, EWS
Changes Take Effect: At the next cycle


Specifies the protocol used to send messages to a corporate e-mail server.

smtp-connection-security
