Meanwhile back at the ranch so to speak...my Tier-3 technical contact is working feverishly on a solution to the WLM/Win 7/MAS missing in action issue. Just got an email saying that he thinks he knows why it isn't working, which could mean a solution is possible.
"Tagged as spam"...by what? MAS or your rule?
I heard from my contact and the news isn't too hopeful for it working in Win 7/WLM.
Okay, I wasn’t sure because I don’t use, or support, WLM very much, so I downloaded and setup WLM, configured it and then ran a trace while it was connecting.
The answer is simple: as I suspected, the traffic to live.com (hotmail.com etc.) is NOT POP3, which travels over TCP port 110, but over TCP port 80, the same port as HTTP. Gmail uses TLSv1 (SSL) so their traffic is encrypted.
As stated we support unencrypted POP3 traffic on non-toolbarred email clients – in other words, TCP port 110 only.
If they want this to work now they’ll need to use either an email client that has a toolbar (Thunderbird 2.x, Eudora, Outlook) or use an email provider that uses conventional POP3 connections.
FWIW, I’ve put in requests to support IMAP traffic, Outlook 2010, Thunderbird 3.x but if they get implemented, I doubt it will be until (at least) the 2011 product release.
Interesting indeed. The weird part is that I never used Anti-Spam as my mail is filtered externally, but I do have it installed in one of my mutli-boots that has the beta product installed and as I was under the impression that WLM was OK this got me involved.
I'm wondering if it will work at least to filter mail if not provide a toolbar in WLM as long as one is NOT using a Hotmail/MSN/Gmail address at all, as I think that is the snag. Anyway, hopefully all will be revealed eventually.
I doubt we'll see much movement until the next year's product hits the servers.Message was edited by: Ex_Brit on 16/03/10 7:52:41 EDT PM
