smtp mail client and ssl

0 votes
I'm using NET+OS2 7.2 and Connect SP. I'm trying to convert the simplest smtp mail client (sends small text message every half hour - that's all) to use a server which only accepts SSL connections. The elements of the app are:
mc_handle = MCCreate( POP3, 0, stru->cHostIp, nport, stru->cHostIp );
MCUserLogin( mc_handle, stru->cUser, stru->cPassword, NAMAILC_WAIT );
MCSetSmtpAuthentication( mc_handle, stru->cUser, stru->cPassword, MC_SMTP_AUTH_ANY );
MCNewMail(mc_handle, &mail_id);
MCAdd_ToAddr( mc_handle, mail_id, addr_table );
MCSendMail( mc_handle, mail_id, stru->cFrom, NULL, stru->cSubject, data, MC_BODYTYPE_OTHER, NAMAILC_WAIT);
MCUserLogout( mc_handle, NAMAILC_WAIT );
MCClose( mc_handle );
This is long-term stable but some servers are withdrawing support for non-SSL connections. So, please, could anyone suggest how to SSL-enable this in the simplest way? I have read the Open SSL stuff that comes with the development system, and stared at the example, but I am lost. (No verification of the server by the client is required, and I am hoping I can get by without any Certificale on the device.) Thanks again.

unfortunately it is not possible at this time with Netos 7.2 and even with latest Netos 7.5. Digi is planning a release in Q2 of next year that will most likely add this feature.
