Exchange and TLS problems

Today i have a problem that an exchange will not send mails though TLS, no matter what i do.

I find out that, somehow this exchange servers where creating new send connector, with forcehelo = True.

Witch mean that the Exchange server is using the OLD HELO instead of the EHLO, when talking to other SMTP servers. Setting this to false help. Now the Exchange server send with TLS.


To see if this is the problem, you can type:

To set it to false, for the send connector “Default_OUT” you can run this powershell command:

Also you might need to set the TLS certificate to the right certificate. Remember that the certificate need to have the hostname in the certificate. Se more on this link:
