It doesn't seem like it would be very practical for marketing emails. Can you explain their use case? I would advise against using marketing automation software, ours included, for sending emails with information so sensitive that it needs that level of protection.

Hi Naor,

To add SSL to your landing pages, you must contact Marketo services.

I doubt they would do this.

If your client needs that level of security, they may need a different level of system.

I agree Grant, but this client will effectively now block all inbound emails not sent with this encryption. While we don't direct market to them (they've slapped our hands even for opt-in communications), I was affraid of operational emails getting blocked if one of their MANY employees were to register for a webinar etc.

Looks like they're just going to be SOL. Their policies, including this new one, effectively block thousands of global employees from getting marketing emails with useful content. They're on an island and that's how they want it. Oh well - thanks for the responses everyone.

Just FYI - we do support authenticating SMTP relays via TLS. That's usually how this topic comes up.
