Email is not routing through a new Network Prevent for Email detection server.

TLS communication is not enabled for the MTA and the Enforce servers.
Server settings match other Network Prevent for Email servers in the same environment.

Error in the SMTPPrevent_Operational0.log:
(SMTP_CONNECTION.5203) Forward connection error (tid=xxx cid=<xxxx> mta=<> reason=Channel is null in ESMPPerr:recv)

Messages in the RequestProcessor0.log:
