A proxy server or firewall is attempting to do SSL inspection and is is not presenting a trusted certificate to Messaging Gateway


Messaging Gateway does not support SSL inspection of encrypted communication between SMG and the Symanec operations center. This includes license registration, probe address provisioning, customer specific rule management, and spam ruleset downloads. Please whitelist or otherwise exempt the internal IP addresses for the Symantec Messaging Gateway (SMG) from SSL inspection on your Proxy/Firewall.
