WinSPC version 9.0.8 has been released and is now available for download.
Customers with an active ESC (Extended Service Coverage) account are eligible to receive the new version.
FEATURES IN RELEASE 9.0.8
The following new feature is included in this release:
- WinSPC E-Mail Encryption and Authentication: WinSPC’s e-mail capabilities have been enhanced to support both encryption and authentication. This means that corporate e-mail servers or other third-party e-mail servers configured to reject e-mails that are unencrypted or sent by users who can’t be authenticated can now accept WinSPC e-mails. As a result, stakeholders with such a server in their infrastructure are able to get up-to-the minute test violations, reports, statuses, and other vital information that WinSPC e-mails are depended on to deliver—and do so in a controlled and secure manner. These e-mail enhancements are designed for e-mail servers that employ the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). (Feature Request Numbers 726, 742, and 999.) For instructions on setting up WinSPC for e-mail encryption and authentication, please refer to the WinSPC Help.
