Solaris 10 What's New

Set SMTP to Use Transport Layer Security

This enhancement is new in the Solaris Express 8/05 release and in the Solaris 10 1/06 release.

The Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) can use Transport Layer Security (TLS) in version 8.13 of sendmail. When enabled, this service to SMTP servers and clients provides private, authenticated communications over the Internet, as well as protection from eavesdroppers and attackers.
