Thread: SSL Inspection for SMTP over SSL/STARTTLS traffic

    Default SSL Inspection for SMTP over SSL/STARTTLS traffic


    We have some R77.30 gateways with the IPS blade and our mail-relay servers behind the firewalls accept encrypted SMTP connections (port 25).

    Is there a way to inspect the traffic so that the IPS can see the connections unencrypted?

    i.e. can I just import the server certificate in Dashboard and add an HTTPS inspection rule, like we do for HTTPS traffic?
