A Note About SSL Certificates
In general, SSL certificates are acquired from certificate authorities. The implementation of certificates falls in the province of the email server and application server. Maximo does not directly (or even indirectly) handle or access SSL certificates. The request for an SSL enabled connection is via a property issued to the JavaMail API. Certificate handling occurs between the application server's JavaMail API and trust store and the email server.
Importing an SSL Certificate into Websphere
In this case we'll be using GMail over SSL. Websphere provides a handy feature for pulling the SSL certificate from the email server.
Note: GMail uses the same certificate for both SMTP and POP3/IMAP.
