MOM Rule Name

The Receive connector requires TLS before the MailFrom command can be run. However, the connector is not configured to accept TLS. Check the authentication setting of this connector.

This Error event indicates the specified Receive connector must use Transport Layer Security (TLS) for all messages that are accepted by the connector. However, the Receive connector is not configured to accept TLS authentication.

A Receive connector requires TLS for all incoming when the RequireTLS parameter on the Set-ReceiveConnector cmdlet in the Exchange Management Shell is set to the value $true. The default value is $false.

If the Receive connector is configured to accept TLS, an SMTP connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Hub Transport server or Edge Transport server that uses the specified Receive connector will display 250-STARTTLS in the response to the EHLO command. If the SMTP connection to the Hub Transport server or Edge Transport that uses the specified Receive connector does not display 250-STARTTLS in the response to the EHLO command, the Receive connector is not configured to accept TLS authentication.

To correct this error, do one of the following:

  • Configure the specified Receive connector to accept TLS authentication. The AuthMechanism parameter of the Receive connector must contain the value TLS.

    You can verify that the Receive connector accepts TLS by using Telnet on port 25 to connect to the Hub Transport server or Edge Transport server that contains the Receive connector, and observing 250-STARTTLS in the response to the EHLO command.

  • Configure the specified Receive connector not to require TLS by setting the RequireTLS parameter on the Set-ReceiveConnector cmdlet in the Exchange Management Shell to the value $false.
