TLS parameter allows selecting how client and SMTP server negotiates the version of TLS or SSL to be used in secure connection when using SSL or STARTTLS commands. This mechanism allows selecting stronger, weaker, or just a preferred version of secure protocol.
While it is usually not necessary to choose TLS version, it may come handy to explicitly exclude some outdated security standards such as SSL v3, and allow only newest TLS v1.1 and TLS v1.2 standards. If no TLS parameter is specified, the operating system chooses the best possible value for particular SMTP server.
Febootimail allows choosing the following TLS versions:
SSLv3. Febootimail also supports the latest TLS standard v1.3 on recent Windows 10 and Windows Server 2019 updates, if it is enabled in OS configuration. To let the operating system, choose the best TLS version, use
ALL) value for TLS parameter. This is also a default parameter when none is specified.
febootimail -TLS 1.2 -TLS SSLv3 -SUBJ Secured email using CMD -FROM email@example.com -TO firstname.lastname@example.org -TEXT Sending secure email with custom TLS options -SMTP reports.db.local -SSL
The registry settings take precedence over TLS parameter. For example, if SSL3 is disabled in the Windows registry, it cannot be enabled using this parameter. Likewise, TLS 1.3 support can be enabled or disabled in Windows registry on recent versions of Windows.
