Enhancement to default SMTP service in B2Bi/SFG to use an LDAP Authenticated secure SMTP Email server that requires password encryption and user authentication for sending out email notifications to users and partners

The present default SMTP server in installed  and configured with the SFG product and does not support authentication as required by the client.We need and enhancement to ensure SFG/B2Bi can support a new SMTP server that requires an LDAP authenticated user/password by default. This new SMTP server needs to be used for all email notifications generated from B2Bi/SFG.    The predefined system process for gateway notification FileGatewayEventEmailNotification uses the unauthenticated default SMTP server configured in Sandbox.cfg. We would need all default email notification BP’s to refer to the new LDAP authenticated SMTP server.

    Thank you for participating in the request for enhancement community. While we understand the need for this request, at this time we cannot entertain this with our current backlog and roadmap priorities. I encourage to re-open the request in 12 months to see where priorities have shifted. We'll continue to monitor for customer feedback.
