 I installed a local copy of RTC 6.0.6 as a localhost on windows 10. I am using the default setting of derby db and websphere liberty server, which are express setup.  I tried to configure the email server using, to send email.  Can someone help me with how to configure this.  I keep getting an error - so I read and tried the openssl s_clinet configuration to keytool the java cert with no success. Is there a step I am missing? Here are the steps i used

1) echo q | openssl s_client -showcerts -connect | openssl x509 -outform DER > smtp_google.der
2) keytool import the certificate. liberty_install_path\liberty\servers\clm\resources\security. Import was successful.
3) stop and start liberty server
4) Send a test email

getting an error - Could not connect to SMTP host:, port: 465, response: -1

Can someone help how I can configure an email send - so I can do some RTC evaluation and learn.  Thank you in advance

Hi Vijay,

Do you have any error in jts.log and ccm.log at this time?

 Unless you want to share more error information, I will close this question.

In general I would suggest you install a local mail server e.g. to have more control. Get that working first and have it work with a mail client such as Thunderbird so you can send and receive mail. Once that works, try to configure the CLM servers. That has always worked best for me.
