I looked around and found some information but I still am confused and not sure 100%. Most of the posts are a few years old...
Does MetaTrader 4 support the use of SSL to send SMTP Emails?
What about TLS?
Thank you in advance
Just found two articles related to your question:
- SECRETS OF METATRADER 4 CLIENT TERMINAL: ALERTING SYSTEM
- CREATING AND PUBLISHING OF TRADE REPORTS AND SMS NOTIFICATION
I got it working with my normal Gmail account that was not an issue, I allowed the use of "Less Secure Apps" as google calls it however I don't believe it uses SSL/TLS in that way.
In fact I can't get it working with my G Suite (Google for Work) account, which requires SSL/TLS
Looks like the discussion MT4 works or not with SSL/TLS is still open, is there any official documentation from MetaQuotes?
What do you want as documentation ?
Of course MT4 is using SSL/TLS, I don't have any details about the implementation, I just know it's working.
"Less secure apps" from Google is not about SSL/TLS, but about OAuth protocol. G Suite is working as a normal Gmail account, except if you are not the administrator you can't see the "Less Secure Apps" setting.
Ok G Suite is working, thank you for the hint.
It would have been nice though to have some kind of MetaTrader/MetaQuotes documentation where it was stated SSL/TLS is supported, not because I don't trust you, you are definitely right, just because it would have killed the argument ;)
