POP3 adapter for Exchange 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,

    We have  BizTalk Server 2006 and I am using POP3 adapter to read mails from mail box..earlier we have exchange 2003 and now it got upgraded..I am getting issue in reading mail and exception is coming as

    URL: POP3://10.xxx.x.xxx#xxxx\test

    Error: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 10.xxx.x.xxx:110 "

    I spoke with network people they said they don't have Basic authentication for POP3 and I need to use TLS authentication. But when I see adapter setting I see under Authentication as Basic ,Digest,SPA

    Pls advise

    I am getting below issue

    1) The server listening on the supplied POP3 port does not support SSL.

    2) The POP3 server name does not match the machine name in the SSL certificate.

    3) The SSL certificate of POP3 server is either expired or not valid.

    URL: POP3://10.xxx.x.xxx#xxx\test

    Error: The remote certificate is invalid according to the validation procedure. ".

    That is clearly certificate issue.

    This usually occurs because either of the following are true:

    1) The certificate is self-signed and not added as a trusted certificate.
    2) The certificate is expired.
    3) The certificate is signed by a root certificate that's not installed on your machine.
    4) A revocation list is probed, but cannot be found/used.

    Try getting some information about the certificate of the exchange server and see if you need to install any specific certs.

    Also if the self-signed certificate has expired they have to renew it.

    Procedure: Renewing self-signed certificates in Exchange 2010

    If it is third-party Exchange certificate then you have to create a new request and get it authenticated with CA and import back the request file to Exchange.

    You have to use you have the Authentication Scheme set to SPA, “Use SSL” to True, and User Name as domain\username.

  • As this is a test server, they are probably using self-signed certificates.
    Please ask them to share the certificate, and add it as a trusted certificate on your BizTalk machine.
    If you already have the certificate, check if the certificate is not expired.
