My SMTP mail server for mail notifications uses a port other than 25, how can I change this port in CA PPM configuration?


All On Premise CA PPM releases.


Unfortunately, it is not possible to specify a port other than 25 for SMTP mail server.

SMTP configuration can be found in CSA > Server Properties > System, where the following can be configured:

  • Hostname (without port; PPM requires port 25)
  • Default sender address
  • (Optional) Use Authentication, necessary if the SMTP requires user/password authentication.
