How email works in Self-Service Password Reset scenario in FIM 2010 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • As you know, we can deploy effectively OTP Email Gateway in SSPS scenario in FIM when we use Exchange. I have a concern is on how email works in FIM, where to configure. Because I'm not using Exchange.

    Your thoughts are always greatly appreciated.

  • The FIM Service is responsible for sending one-time passwords, and should use the SMTP or Exchange configuration as found in Service/Microsoft.ResourceManagement.Service.exe.config.

    Personally I am not a fan of email OTP, as a determined attacker who can guess or learn a user's security questions may be able to break into the user's non-company email account also.  SMS doesn't have this problem as long as users keep track of their mobile phones...
