Introduction

idenprotect Core Platform is configured by default to send emails on port 25 of the selected SMTP Server using SMTP Basic Authentication.

If the SMTP Server in use is Microsoft Exchange, authentication between Exchange and the idenprotect Core Platform may cause issues. In these specific scenarios, a Receive Connector should be configured that accepts anonymous users.

If you already have Microsoft Exchange configured and need to configure the idenprotect Core Platform SMTP connection, please see Email SMTP Configuration
