Can we use IP address in place of host Server name?

I got Ip address from client for sending smtp mail? is it possible to send mail with IP address in place of host server name?

NB: the client havnt shared the password due to security reasons, they can share the password only if the IP is useful in sending mail through smtp mail actvity


Have you tried by placing the IP address in SMTP activity?

Then if it is failed, let us know what type of error you are facing by providing the error screenshot

That way we can help out



I think it’s possible in theory. However it might be trouble with TLS/SSL connection if use SMTP over TLS/SSL because host name is used as CN of SSL/TLS certificate, in general.


Thank you guys i have tested with ip address and found to be working
