Adobe Connect with Secure SMTP (AWS SES)

To use secure SMTP with Adobe Connect on AWS SES, do the following:

Backup and edit \Connect\10.6.0\appserv\service-wrapper\64bit\conf\ConnectProSvc.conf:

Add:
wrapper.java.additional.22=-Dmail.smtp.port=587
wrapper.java.additional.23=-Dmail.smtp.starttls.enable=true

Add this, but leave it commneted out unless debugging is needed:
#wrapper.java.additional.25=-Dmail.debug=true

Backup and edit Custom.ini:

Comment out:
#SMTP_HOST
#SYSTEM_EMAIL

Add:
SMTP_START_TLS_ENABLED=true

Log onto the SQL DB and run the following queries on the Connect DB after editing the SMTP domain name, username and AWS zone variables as appropriate:

UPDATE PPS_CONFIG
SET VALUE = ‘noreply@info.domianname.com
WHERE section = ‘main’ AND NAME = ‘config-smtp-from-email’;

UPDATE PPS_CONFIG
SET VALUE = ‘email-smtp.us-east-1.amazonaws.com
WHERE section = ‘main’ AND NAME = ‘config-smtp-host’;

UPDATE PPS_CONFIG
SET VALUE = ‘StandardUser
WHERE section = ‘main’ AND NAME = ‘config-smtp-user’;

UPDATE PPS_CONFIG
SET VALUE = ‘noreply@info.domainname.com
WHERE section = ‘main’ AND NAME = ‘config-system-email’;

Stop and Start the Adobe Connect and AMS Services.

Go to console Adobe Connect Server Console (8510 localhost), and paste the SMTP password into “SMTP Settings” and save it.
