Encryption Management Server cannot send to an alternate archive server using STARTTLS

Encryption Management Sever allows you to create mail rules that send a copy of a message to an alternate archive server. However, such messages cannot be sent to mail servers using STARTTLS.

Warning messages similar to this appear in the Mail log:

Failed to archive message <<<[email protected]>>, adding to archive mail queue.

Exception while re-trying copy of message <<[email protected]>> to smtp server SMTP MAIL FROM failed: 530 5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS command first


Symantec Encryption Management Server release 3.3.2 MP13 and above.


To workaround this issue, do not use STARTTLS when sending to archive servers.
