Configuring Forte Agent for SMTP/POP

SSL Setup for Forte Agent

To setup SMTP (outgoing) in Forte Agent:

  • Click Options ----> User and System ----> System
  • Click "Send email messages with SMTP"
  • Click SMTP Authentication button
  • Click "Login with a username and password"
  • Enter your username
  • Click "Remember password between sessions" if you wish to do so. Note: Doing so will retain your password. This is an un-secure procedure to follow. We advise not to save your password but enter the password each time you send a message.
  • Click "OK"

To setup POP (incoming) in Forte Agent:

  • Click Options ----> In Bound Email ---->
  • Click "Receive Mail With POP"
  • Click "Login with Username and Password"
  • Enter your username
  • Click "Remember password between sessions" if you wish to do so. Note: Doing so will retain your password. This is an un-secure procedure to follow. We advise not to save your password but enter the password each time you send a message.
  • Click "OK"

Agent works over SSL by using stunnel (http://www.stunnel.org). After downloading and installing stunnel, edit the stunnel.conf file as follows:

client = yes
[pop3]
accept = localhost:110
connect = mail.cotse.net:995
[smtp]
accept = localhost:25
connect = www.cotse.net:465

Go back into the Options --> User and System settings in Forte Agent and Install stunnel as a Win32 service using "stunnel -install" and start it up. Works beautifully.

The only other thing is to specify "localhost" as the SMTP and POP server in the mail client and otherwise configure the client as you would using the equivalent non-SSL services. This should work to SSL-enable any mail client and stunnel is portable to *nix systems.
