    I am not seeing anything in the probe docs where 1.2 support was added specifically.
    I do know when using TLS you have to import the certificate to the machine where the emailgtw probe is installed.
    Did you import the certificate?
    Is so are you getting some type of error?

    A server is in a critical production environment.  I don't want to make any changes before I'm sure it'll work

    I would suggest you test in your dev environment and let us know if you run into a problem

    Hi 

    Some addtional info in general for using TLS with emailgtw from emailgtw docs 

    The SMTP certificate must be installed on the host system where the probe is deployed. This is required to use Transport Layer Security (TLS).

    The Linux robot where the probe is deployed must have OpenSSL certificate installed to use the TLS functionality to connect to the SMTP server.

    (Optional) Select Ignore TLS if you do not want the probe to attempt a Transport Layer Security (TLS) connection with the primary and secondary email server. This feature is required because some email servers announce TLS capability even if it is not present, due to a missing certificate.
    Default: Not selected
