Can I use in xp_startsmtp system procedure, trusted_certificates parameter with path to certificate file with UNC path like this:



I tried also: '\\\\\\remote_pc\\certs\\Equifax_Secure_Certificate_Authority.cer'.

But both locations do not work :/

Only works when I specify local path: 'C:\\\local_catalog\\\this_pc\\Equifax_Secure_Certificate_Authority.cer'

This procedure do not support paths as UNC names?

I don't know but just want to ask whether you have doubled the backslashes accordingly, i.e. used four backslashes before the server name and two for the remaining directories?

Yes, I also tried with doubled backslashes

The problem was that the local system account has no network rights by default. When I run the service under a user with the necessary rights, then all works ok.
