<foglight_home>/jre/bin/keytool -J-server ‑import ‑file <path_to_cert_file> ‑alias ldapsvrcert ‑keystore <path_to_cacerts> ‑storepass <store_pwd>
Root CA certificate: <foglight_home>\jre\bin\keytool -import -trustcacerts -alias ldapsvrcert -keystore <path_to_cacerts> -storepass changeit -file <path_to_cert_file>
Intermediate CA certificate 1: <foglight_home>\jre\bin\keytool -import -alias ldapsvrcert2 -keystore <path_to_cacerts> -storepass changeit -file <path_to_cert_file>

Using encryption when sending email from Foglight

You can use encryption when sending email from Foglight. To do so, you must enable Foglight to use the SSL protocol and configure the mail server used by Foglight to use an SSL certificate that is not self-signed.

You can configure Foglight to use the SSL protocol either on the Email Configuration Dashboard or by editing the related mail.use.ssl registry variable. See the Administration and Configuration Help for more information.

See the documentation for your mail server for information about configuring it to use an SSL certificate.
