    With SSL enabled, SMTP server stops receiving connections

    In order to send mail to many systems, including GMail, I had to bump up the compliance levels of my server, and so I created a certificate with Mercury and enabled SSL connections on Mercury S(MTP).

     This works for a while, but then it seizes up and stops accepting connections, reporting only 'SSL Error' and I have to restart Mercury.

    Has anyone else seen this?  Is there a solution?

    Assuming the error message is relevant the solution is most likely to update SSL handling, for instance by installing the 4.81 version of Mercury. It's still not publicly released but I can send you a download link if you would be interested to try it.

    I certainly would be keen to give it a go.  It's certainly too unreliable the way it is, haha.  =)

    On its way, let's hope it will work better!

    Thank you for that.  I'll spin it up and report back.

    Either way works fine. I'll probably see it quicker if you send it directly to me though!
