Is it possible to select a specific cipher strength for outbound mail using TLS in Exchange 2010? I need it to use cipher strength AES256-SHA instead of AES128-SHA. What's strange is that my inbound mail receives as AES256-SHA but outbound is 128. Is this normal behaviour? Does anyone have any tips on how to resolve this issue?

Thanks in advance.

We really do prefer that answers have content, not pointers to content. This may theoretically answer the question however, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – Iain Nov 21 '11 at 8:43
