Matt, et al;
I've been working with Tarkan, and several others, on the issue of TLS 1.2, and installed the special TLS compile onto both my SmarterMail server, and the SmarterMail server of an insurance client last evening.
All tests indicate that TLS 1.2 is functioning properly with both SmarterMail servers which are running the TLS 1.2 compile and non-SmarterMail servers which support TLS 1.2.
Here are a few examples:
Test #1 - GMAIL.COM to CHICAGONETTECH.COM
Received: from mail-la0-f52.google.com (mail-la0-f52.google.com [126.96.36.199]) by securemail.chicagonettech.com with SMTP

Test #2 - SmarterMail with special build to CHICAGONETTECH.COM
Received: from mail.insuremart.net ( mail.insuremart.net [188.8.131.52]) by securemail.chicagonettech.com with SMTP

Test #3 - Non-SmarterMail [IETF.ORG] to CHICAGONETTECH.COM
Received: from mail.ietf.org (mail.ietf.org [184.108.40.206]) by securemail.chicagonettech.com with SMTP

Test #4 - Non-SmarterMail [GODADDY.COM - NON SECURE SERVER - through forwarder, as is now required by GoDaddy virtual servers running MX] to CHICAGONETTECH.COM
Received: from p3plsmtps2ded04.prod.phx3.secureserver.net (p3plsmtps2ded04.prod.phx3.secureserver.net [220.127.116.11]) by securemail.chicagonettech.com with SMTP;

NO TLS WHATSOEVER
These same tests were conducted with many other servers, both TLS 1.2 and non-TLS 1.2, and all functioned without issues.
Thanks for getting the TLS 1.2 code into SmarterMail. This is an important move forward in the never ending quest to provide the best possible security for all of our hosted customers and will help in both maintaining existing clients and bringing new customers to our base.
