TLS – Transport Layer Security (TLS) and its predecessor Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is an encryption for secure data transmission over the Internet. With version 3.0, the protocol under the name TLS will be further developed and standardized.

SMTP-Auth – This authentication is a protocol and an addition of ESMTP. It allows the mail server to authenticate the mail client using its user name and password.

SCOT – SAPConnect transaction to external communications to set up and monitor the SAPConnect sending process.

Setting SAPConnect SAP mail delivery

– Quick Start Guide –

Important notes: The mail server with which the SAP system is both the input and the output side connected must be equipped with appropriate virus scanners and spam filters. It is recommended to separate the reception socket through the firewall to the outside, so that no delivery can be made by third parties. It is further recommended that the output side does not communicate directly with a mail server outside the firewall. These instructions may vary slightly in different SAP releases.

Connecting to the mail server and routing defined – in transaction SCOT take in “Business Communication Administration => Settings => Outgoing Messages => SMTP node” the following settings:

  • Set indicator “node in operation“
  • Mail Host: Here you enter the IP address or host name of the mail server
  • Mail Port: Usually, 25 or 587
  • Supported address types: Internet and address the “*”. In order for this node is used for all e-mail addresses
