Legacy SMTP Send Behavior

Karla Marsh
EFT

THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • EFT Server version 5.x and later
  • EFT v4.x to v7.4.x stores advanced properties in the registry.
  • EFT v8.x stores Advanced Properties in a JSON file.
    • When you upgrade from EFT v7.4.x to EFT v8, the non-default settings that you have defined in the registry will be added to the Advanced Properties file during upgrade. (Default settings are part of the EFT configuration files.)
      For a spreadsheet of advanced properties, please refer to the help in your version of EFT.

DISCUSSION

This advanced property is used for communicating with legacy SMTP servers that do not support RFC 1652 or if having trouble sending messages through your existing SMTP server.

In v8.0 and later, add the name:value pair to the advancedproperties.json file as described in the "Advanced Properties" topic in the online help for your version of EFT.
{
"LegacySMTPSendBehavior": "true"
}

In versions prior to v8.0, create the setting below.

On 32-bit systems:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0\]

On 64-bit systems:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0\]

"LegacySMTPSendBehavior"=dword:00000001

(DWORD; non-zero to enable the feature)
