TLS Email Support

Today does IBM Storage Protect OC has support to email reports over email, but this hasn't been updated for a wild now and the supported protocol is a unsecure SMTP port 25 communcation and we can always create a SMTP tunnel to a Cloud SMTP Server that are only support TLS like M365 and Gmail.

We asked for TLS Email support in the Operation center so that can talk to any Secure SMTP Server in the Cloud.

    If the SP Server is running on Windows, Linux, or Unix you may be able to leverage "stunnel" for this use case.

    This request may not be delivered within the release currently under development, but the theme is aligned with the current multi-year strategy. IBM may consider and evaluate any RFE Community feedback for this request through activities such as voting. IBM will update this request in the future.
