SCAN TO EMAIL: HOW TO SETUP SCAN TO EMAIL WHEN YOUR COPIER DOES NOT SUPPORT SSL EMAIL




Stunnel is an open-source multi-platform computer program, used to provide universal TLS/SSL tunneling service. One could use Stunnel to provide a secure SSL connection to an existing non-SSL-aware SMTP mail server. Assume the SMTP server expects TCP connections on Port 25. one would configure Stunnel to map the SSL Port 465 to non-SSL port 25. A mail client connects via SSL to Port 465. Network traffic from the client initially passes over SSL to the Stunnel application, which then transparently forwards unsecured traffic to port 25. The mail server sees a non-SSL mail client.

The Stunnel process could be running on the same or a different server from the unsecured mail application; however, both machines would typically be behind a firewall on a secure internal network (so that an intruder could not make its own unsecured connection directly to Port 25).
